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