Former undisputed UFC lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira managed to successfully land his eleventh straight victory at UFC 274 on Saturday against Justin Gaethje, however, Stockton favorite, Nate Diaz has claimed an “easy” submission victory awaits him if he ever fought the Brazilian. 

Oliveira, who was slated to attempt the second defense of his undisputed lightweight title, was stripped of his crown on Friday following the weigh-ins, after he successfully made championship weight for his clash with Gaethje, tipping the scales at 155.5lbs.

Relinquishing the lightweight title upon the commencement of his headliner with Gaethje, Oliveira, still proved that he is the outlier within the division just over three minutes later, stopping the Arizona native on enemy territory with yet another rallying submission victory.

Credited with a single knockdown courtesy of an uppercut which caught the Brazilian coming in, Gaethje himself was dropped in an exchange with a right hand, before Oliveira immediately leapt to his back, searching for a slew of submission openings.

Failing to latch up with an armbar or reverse triangle, Gaethje, who attempted to get up from his knees, gave up his back, with Oliveira establishing hooks, securing a seatbelt and then locked up a rear-naked choke after adjusting his grip.

The win came as Oliveira’s staggering eleventh on the trot, as well as extending his lead as the most prolific finisher and submission artist in the history of the organization.
