Charles Oliveira may not be the UFC lightweight champion

Charles Oliveira may not be the UFC lightweight champion, but there is no doubting who is the best lightweight on planet. Oliveira defeated Justin Gaethje in a violent sugar rush at UFC 274 on Saturday night.

Things, as usual during this lightweight title campaign, did not look good for Oliveira early. Gaethje dropped Oliveira on two occasions in the opening round: first with a right uppercut and then with a left hook. “The Highlight” was mindful to not engage on the ground with Oliveira and welcomed him to his feet. Gaethje’s unwillingness to commit to ground-and-pound led to his eventual demise. Oliveira found his footing and responded with relentless pressure. Combination boxing, knees, flying knees and a jumping front kick. “Do Bronx” found the home a right hand that seated Gaethje. Oliveira immediately spun his web on the ground, transitioning from a rear-naked choke to armbar to triangle armbar before sinking in a rear-naked choke that forced Gaethje to tap.

UFC president Dana White was noticeably absent from the Octagon for his traditional role of strapping the UFC title around the winner’s waist. Oliveira, who was the defending UFC lightweight champion at the start of the week, was stripped of his belt after missing weight by half a pound. There were rumors circulating from multiple fighters this week that inaccurate scales given to the fighters in advance contributed to weight issues. Regardless, Oliveira is no longer the UFC lightweight champion but will compete for it in his next fight.

“Hey there is something here,” Oliveira teased during the post-fight interview with help from a translator. “This is a message to the entire division. I am problem for the entire division. Look at this team, look at me. I am the enlightened. That is my title. It should be here.

“Hey Conor McGregor, are you coming up or are you going to run away?”

Oliveira has extended his winning streak to 11 and has finished Gaethje, Dustin Poirier, Michael Chandler, Kevin Lee and many others during that stretch. The only small blemish — if you can call it that — is a clear unanimous decision win over Tony Ferguson in December 2020.
