Brazil’s own Charles Oliveira once again proved to the world that he is the best lightweight fighter in the UFC as he tapped out Justin Gaethje in the first round. The bout started off with non-stop action from the opening bell where the Do Bronx jumped on Gaethje’s back and locked up on a rear-naked choke submission that concluded the fight.

The bout lasted just one minute and 38 seconds. After the fight, Oliveira was pumped up as he celebrated his victory with countless fans in the Footprint Arena. First, he was given the Brazilian national flag by a bunch of fans from his home country. Another fan gave the fighter his funky goggles which Oliveira wore and showed off his samba skills. Then he just started jumping around in joy as he neared his locker room.

But despite this win, Oliveira isn’t the UFC lightweight title as he was overweight by half a pound and hence was stripped of his belt. After the fight, the Brazilian pugilist addressed the missing belt and said, “There’s something wrong here.”

“The champion’s name is Charles Oliveira. I made weight Thursday and you took my belt away. I’m a problem for the entire division. I am the champion. This is my title. It should be here”, he said.

He also called out UFC President Dana White and Conor McGregor. Oliveira proclaimed, “Hey, Dana White, you said I don’t care put anybody in front of me. I’m not going to choose. Conor McGregor, are you coming up or are you going to run away?”
