UFC 269: Charles Oliveira Continues Reign, Amanda Nunes Ends Hers

Charles Oliveira has no intentions of ending his lightweight reign yet.

Oliveira submitted Dustin Poirier with a standing rear naked choke just over a minute into the third round in the main event of UFC 269 in Las Vegas.

The fight started great for Poirier.

He won in the first round when both fighters were busy showing striking skills.

In the second round, Oliveira managed to keep the fight on the ground. Poirier tried to lock the body triangle and restrict the fighting area for the Brazilian, but his hands and legs got tired during this process.

Oliveira landed several huge punches and won the second round.

In the third round, it was evident that Poirier was tired, and Oliveira went for the takedown and took back at the time. He took the back of Poirier and finished.

In a fight where everyone saw Julianna Peña as the underdog, she showed everyone why she shouldn’t be in the co-main event against Amanda Nunes.

Nunes lost her bantamweight belt against Peña in the second round via submission rear-naked choke. Nunes beat Peña to the punch in the first round, but came the second and Peña backed up the former champ with her strikes.

Peña took the fight to the mat and immediately locked her opponent in a rear-naked choke. Nunes tapped.

In the first round, Kai Kara-France earned an incredible knockout victory against former bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.

Just like Kara-France, Sean O’Malley made a statement in the first round by earning a knockout victory against the No. 15 ranked contender Raulian Paiva.
