Featherweights Max Holloway (14-3) and Charles Oliveira (20-5) headlined UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon on Aug. 23, 2015. Both guys were looking to leap frog the competition in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 145-pound rankings and potentially earn a title shot.
Unfortunately, the fight was halted early due to an injury.
Oliveira missed a high kick at the start of the first round. Holloway went for a spinning kick. Oliveira locked in a Muay Thai clinch and landed a knee. “Blessed” targeted the body of his opponent with punches. “Do Bronx” went for a takedown, but Holloway reversed the position and walked away looking for the fight to resume on the feet. Oliveira got up, but went down holding his collarbone and referee Herb Dean stopped the fight.
UFC commentator Jon Anik mentioned that the injury is a possible pinched nerve.
Final Result: Max Holloway def. Charles Oliveira via TKO (injury) – Round 1, 1:39
