Charles Oliveira received a hero’s welcome following his UFC Lightweight Title win.
Oliveira shared the Octagon with Michael Chandler this past Saturday night, May 15. The bout headlined UFC 262 inside the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The 155-pound scrap was contested for the vacant UFC Lightweight Championship.
Oliveira found himself in trouble in the opening frame as Chandler’s pressure proved to be finding success. Ultimately, it was Oliveira who scored the second-round TKO victory to realize his dream of becoming a UFC champion.
Oliveira was swarmed by fans once he reached Guaruja, Sao Paulo, Brazil. He was given a hometown welcome as you can see in the video above.
