After dropping three of his past four fights, Charles Oliveira may have just scored the biggest win of his career at #UFC210.
Paired up against former Bellator lightweight champion "Ill" Will Brooks, the Brazilian submission specialist quickly took the action to the mat. When Brooks attempted to get back to his feet, "Do Bronx" latched onto his back and slowly worked for a rarely-seen standing rear-naked choke. Brooks appeared to tap early into the choke, but was shielded from Big John McCarthy's sight.
It wouldn't matter in the end, though, as Brooks would ultimately tap for good just a couple seconds later. Despite arriving to the UFC with a lot of hype behind him last year, the loss now drops the former Bellator lightweight champ to just 1-2 in his first 3 UFC bouts.
