Greg Nelson of Minnesota Martial Arts and the coach for UFC fighter Nik Lentz stated on his Facebook page today that the controversial Charles Oliveira vs. Nik Lentz fight from UFC on Versus 4 last night has been ruled a no contest:

Nik wins Fight Of The Night Bonus, and the fight was ruled a No Contest due to the illegal knee. Back home then up to watch my sons soccer games in Duluth tomorrow. Then back to the Academy solid til mid July. Volkmann next for UFC in August.

The No Contest ruling has not yet been officially announced or confirmed by either the UFC or the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission, although the UFC has announced Oliveira vs. Lentz as Fight of the Night.

Featured on the Facebook prelims, this was shaping up to be an excellent fight until Oliveira landed an illegal knee in the 2nd round.  The blow was not called by the referee, but severly stunned Lentz, allowing Oliveira to secure the submission victory not long after.
