A dynamic Oliveira was certainly on display early. A series of excellent leg and middle kicks combined with well-timed albeit stuffed shots came courtesy the Brazilian. Leg kicks were also part of Oliveira's game, although most landed to the outside. Eventually a stuffed shot from Oliveira allowed Escudero to work from half guard for some time before Oliveira recaptured full guard. In so doing, though, Escudero landed a couple of beautiful elbows from top position.
The second round opens with Oliveira actually achieving a single leg dump only to get his back taken and Escudero return to his feet. However, a series of brutal leg and middle kicks began to land for Oliveira. A few takedown attempts for Escudero go nowhere while Oliveira continued to nail the Mexican with leg and middle kicks.
The third round opens with a groin kick to Escudero, but the damage is minimal. The tide is turned, so to speak, when Oliveira is nailed with a groin kick in the clinch. After the action is restarted a failed kick turned into a scramble. Escudero was taken down from a grabbed kick. As he stood his back was taken and from there it was academic. Despite not having the full throat, Oliveira submitted the game Escudero.
Charles Oliveira submits Efrain Escudero at 2:25 of round three.
