Charles Oliveira has strugged notably with adversity in his career. He’s been dropped, submitted and stopped by strikes. Tonight, once more overcoming that hurdle — he finishes Michael Chandler to become the king of the lightweights.

in a fast-paced start, Chandler ate some notable early calf kicks, before almost locking up a guillotine as Oliveira shot for a double-leg. Giving up his back to Oliveira, the Brazilian threatened with a rear-naked choke which Chandler defended. Back to the feet, Chandler stunned and dropped Oliveira at the fence, riding out some very worrying adversity.
