Carlos Diego Ferreira took full advantage of all the eyeballs on him at UFC 246.

Kicking off the Conor McGregor-headlining card on Saturday night, Ferreira met Anthony Pettis in a lightweight bout.

The Brazilian quickly took Pettis’ back, however, the former lightweight champion scrambled and was able to escape danger in the first round. It didn’t last though.

Ferreira took Pettis down again in the second round and took his back. This time, he ended the fight as he sunk in the rear-naked choke with Pettis eventually tapping.

As a result, he not only got the biggest win of his career but is also now on a six-fight winning streak.
