RANDOM NEWCOMER, OLIVEIRA, SCORES SICK TRIANGLE/ARMBAR FINISH IN UFC DEBUT.

Minimal apologies to those lazy grapplers who have yet to watch last night's UFC on Versus.  But, you really need to prioritize this kind of thing, and watching ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" instead of the UFC was just lame.

For those who missed it, relatively unknown Brazilian lightweight, Charles Oliveira, scored a very sick and outrageously quick Round 1 triangle/armbar finish against even more unknown, Darren Elkins

Looks like Oliveira's got some solid BJJ skills and he's undefeated in Brazilian MMA.  Time will tell if he's a real contender.  It's just great to see a textbook submission like this in the UFC - very rare in this era of MMA.  Props to Oliveira for his win.

You can find the fight online at a variety of MMA piracy websites.  We are too afraid of the UFC to embed it here.

AND, on a side/non-grappling related note:  GOMI!
