Charles Oliveira’s ground game is so good guys are afraid to follow him to the ground when they drop him. Basically his bjj gets him an eight count ♂️— The Thugjitsu Master (@thugjitsumaster) May 8, 2022
Oliveira comes back from getting knocked to the canvas, twice, to get the victory by submission. Gaethje lost his patience and Oliveira was not going to be denied tonight. The more skillful guy won. Only guy I can see maybe beating him is Makhachev.— Kenny Florian (@kennyflorian) May 8, 2022
I want Charles. Thats the fucken fight— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) May 8, 2022
