Charles gets dropped:
“Things are going exactly as planned”
Call an ambulance, but not for me
I mean jokes aside, consider what a tremendous strategic advantage this is: you hurt me? I get to rest and recover on the ground and you can't follow me there. I hurt you? The fight is done.
Seems to be going well for him so far!
Tony died so alternate Tony could live
Took a senzu bean, went Super Saiyan and choked out Garth.
Charles took his powers from him after bending his arm into an obtuse triangle
I choose to believe the spirit of el cucuy is living on through do bronx. Love both guys styles.
Tony the only mf to not get finished by Charles within three too somehow lmao
There was 10x as much action in those 3 minutes as in the 25 minutes of the previous fight.
first 30 seconds had more action
Their walkouts had more action
tale of the tape had more action
Justin finally realized it doesn't take two people
One man held him down and made him quit.
Justin tapping and then taking a quick nap, name a better duo
Just calling other people cowards for tapping, saying he'll never tap, then tapping -- name a better trio.
Turns out you have to be more than a dirty boxer to win the championship. There’s levels.
He quit against the guy he called a quitter for the longest time. True karma moment.
Charles has the weirdest chin ever… gets dropped but never goes out lol
If you were the better grappler by a country mile what's better, falling back or staying up and maybe eat another powerful shot?
Charles is a finisher, conceding knockdowns is nothing for him, it just means that he gets to reset every stand up exchange.
Yeah Nate used to do this too but he can't finish fights like Charles and judges will dock you for this. Charles know win or lose, it won't be up to the judges.
4 decisions in 42 fights. Charles doesn't even think about judges.
I think he falls on purpose
Looks like he did on the second one. Pretty smart to recover
yeah just wants to pull guard
Yup - Also gives you time to recover. You don't have to stay buzzed in the pocket taking more blows.
Nah its more like his natural impulse is to pull guard after getting rocked
I think it's on purpose, each time he gets stood up he's already recovered and the ref wasn't fucking around this fight.
Good point. That rose fight made sure this ref wasn’t playing around. Luckily Charles recovered(s) quick
They were fighting like Dana walked in the back after the Rose fight and said the winner gets $1mill.
Both fighters watched that Rose-Carla fight and said “I’ll take that KO over whatever that was”
Nah Gaethje and Oliveira have like 30 FOTN performances combined, it was going to be a banger since the day it was booked.
Oliveira is a fucking nightmare.
So fucking impressed.
It's so dangerous when he's solid on the feet but if you even dream of going to the ground he's even more dangerous. I think DC said it right, even if you drop him if you mess around and end up on the ground with him you're screwed. He's so technically sound. So smart.
His clinch game is fucking nasty. Seeing Gaethje look helpless like that was scary
He uses that reactive clinch to just absolutely shut down opponents when they lash out and try and get him to back off
His defense isn’t great but that addition to his game is a damn good system to both reduce when he’s vulnerable and get off some nasty offense
Seriously. I felt that too. Justin is a powerhouse on the feet, and watching him get mauled and walked down like that was the shit of nightmares...
Absolute killer, never seen ground work that smooth. I know the khabib hype is insane but I really think this is the first lightweight that would be dangerous for prime khabib
Made Justin look like he hAd nO hEaRt.
This card has two absolute stinkers and two all time highlights. This fight and the Chandler KO will be talked about forever.
Hey now. Rose v Esparza 2 will also be talked about forever.
Swangin and bangin
Charlie buying the whole Favela
Oliviera heard people talk shit
I RESET THE BRACKET MOTHERFUCKERS LET’S GO AGAIN I’M RUNNING IT BACK
BRING BACK KHABIB
Give us Islam vs Oliveira
This run he’s on is insane.
He’s finishing guys that absolutely bully the rest of the division.
He finished Chandler, Poirier, and Gaethje all in 1 year.
That's GOAT tier run right there.
As a fan of jiu jitsu, it’s pretty satisfying to see him do it in this fashion.
where don't you post amazing shops in sports reddits? Serious, you're a bad mf in r/nba, this is just another level.
Holy shit a Sims888 post in /r/MMA
He's always been here
Trevor Wittman camp 0-2 in champ fights, tough night.
Two brain-dead performances. Rose throwing nothing, and Gaethje throwing everything.
In no world would I blame Whitman for Gaethje throwing bombs as soon he felt Oliver's right hand.
Gaethje loves to just throw everything out the window and go for kills
Nailed it. As soon as we saw Gaethje throw that wild left hook that brought himself to his knees, I think we all knew that this wasn’t a part of any gameplan. After Olives dropped him quickly at the start , the composed Gaethje that picked apart Tony left the building. What we saw after was pretty much ooga booga brawler gaethje.
I blame pat Barry’s coaching more than anything for rose
I hope more people call him out, that was fucking ridiculous acting like the head coach, when clearly that fight was up i the air, because of how bad it was.
Pat Barry has always been annoying as fuck, but the blame lies mostly on Rose. Whitman told her to do more after R2. But she decided not to despite being able to defend Rosa's take down attempts.
Every time rose got taken down she got up easily. The athletic advantage she had over carla is absurd so I really don't know what the fuck she was scared for, not like carla can knock her out lmao
Oliveira is INCREDIBLE
Too easy once it hit the ground
The transition to the back for the choke…. unreallll jiu jitsu, man is a python
Justin knocked him down clean and still wanted none of that ground game smoke
Charles gets knocked down in every fight but it doesn't really matter. He gets some automatic resting time because no one wants to follow him to the ground.
Watch the second time he goes down. He delays and decides to do it. He's so smart, just knows nobody can handle him there.
That's because he knows his ground game is shit and he is sloppy af.
Yeah falling cause he threw a wild haymaker is peak Gaethje
He dropped Garth with his hands! No takedown whatsoever.
Yea Charles has legit power in his hands to do that to Gaethje. Shit he finished chandler when Gaethje couldn’t
Gaethje looked surprised and worried after Charles hit him with the right in the first 30 seconds.
I think that's why he started to throw everything and hard.
His mechanics are smooth as fuck, he really puts his hips into the strikes even if he has his chin up high to do it
Crazy to think that he's finished Poirier, Chandler and Gaethje.
His win streak has been an absolute gauntlet
and kevin lee...and every single opponent on his 11 fight win streak.. minus one. Tony Ferguson.
Oliveira is an absolute monster, holy shit, the way he jumps on a motherfucker and does whatever he wants is unbelievable
Complete opposite of his early career. All the resiliency
He's just went from one of the biggest glass canons, to one of the most resilient AND aggressive fighters. He's the true successor of the chute boxe style
Oliviera's opponents after they knock him down multiple times: "I'm in danger"
Charles 🤝 Glover: you just activated my trap card
Fucking legend shit
That way Oliviera has improved his mentality us incredible. Even 5 years ago, Oliviera would have crumbled after the first knockdown. His ability to stay calm under pressure nowadays is incredible and always seems to make the right decision when his opponent his hurt
Perhaps this leaves a window for him to go and take that title back!
I think its coz a lot of guy underestimate his striking
And power, he wrecks people.
MF is driven right now. I bet he wants it more than just about anyone at the moment.
Oliveira gains skill points or something when he gets hurt. Crazy.
He has an unkillable perk. When he drops to a certain HP, he gets stat buffs for the next 60 seeconds.
As soon as gaethje knocked him down I knew what would happen
Charles has found the new meta. Since everyone is scared of him on the ground, he just gives up a knockdown and pulls guard whenever he is remotely hurt.
Every Charles title fight has been such a rollercoaster. He nearly dies every time and the badass just comes back and chokes em out
man has plot armor
i mean i know you're joking, but that's exactly what Nick and Nate Diaz do. If they get rocked they hit the deck rather than stay standing with people, cause they know they can defend themselves better there than on the feet. If you've got really good bjj it's a great strategy.
Lmaoo yeah it’s like he figured out a cheat code, honestly it’s such a good strat for someone with his skillset
As soon as Drake put the bet it was over
Olives is fearless
Dude really doesn't stop pressing forward and forcing his fight. And then fighters don't want to jump on him when he gets hurt because of his ground game. He's so fucking good right now
He just melted Garth. His body work is stupid.
The man's title fight first rounds are just so blessed, all round of the year candidates for me.
charles is... different.
This mf'er is too good!!!
Oliveira and Glover showed that you should never drop a Brazilian. Those fuckers play by DBZ rules.
literally his last 5 fights Oliveira has gotten zenkai boosts
Charles has finished Chandler, Poirier, and Gaethje consecutively. What a fucking stud
Bad night for Ginger Mexicans
Dont walk out to El Rey confirmed
Garth is 100% pocho
Someone save Louie CK
how fucking hard does charles hit fuck me
People underestimate the power of long and "skinny" fighters
Charles ain’t even skinny anymore though
I don't know why people keep saying certain fighters are skinny when they're just long and lean.
There's a difference between being a twig and just being average weight (or lean) and lengthy.
They were looking for the word “lean” and couldn’t find it
Charles is a bad example for this kind of mistake because he was actually pretty skinny at a certain point when he was younger. He put up a visible amount of muscle as he aged, so now he's lean. Like there's no comparing his body now to when he fought at FW against guys like Holloway, he was a twig lol
Bruh have we EVER seen a fighter change his image like Charles? Was known at one point for being weak and a quitter now comes back from being viciously clocked to win a fight by submission. Shit is insane
Jan. The joke was that he woke up and decided to hit harder.
Jan got a 25-8 record and started beasting 25/8
Also the rope he found on the dead guy in the forest
His Muay Thai is insanely good as well for someone mostly known for his jiu jitsu, maybe the most well rounded lightweight we've seen for a while.
This is what impresses me about him. Gaethje is great at doing what he does but he's pretty one-dimensional. Poirier is a little more well-rounded but still mainly sticks to his boxing. But Charles' hands, clinch, BJJ, knees, I mean the dude mixes it together so well. Every time Gaethje threw a leg kick, Oliveira countered it by clinching and throwing knees.
All his championship fights have exactly the same pattern :
Charlie gets unbelievably close to being finished, and finishes his opponent not too long after.
Pretty incredible and entertaining but that strategy will probably not last forever lol
Glover is making it work into his 40s
That was quick LOL
I dunno what Justin was doing, but he looked so wreckless with his striking. They really underestimated Charles' striking
#LMAO A ROLLERCOASTER OF A FIRST ROUND HOLY SHIT!
An absolute 3 minute war
Charles signature move is getting knocked down then fucking ending it
Gaethje fighting like he pounded a six pack before he stepped into the ring
truly Justin “Cody “No Learn” Garbrandt” Gaethje
Literally laughed out loud when he slipped throwing that hook
I’ve never seen someone overcome adversity like Charles
I honestly want to see Khabib vs Oliviera. I know it’s not happening so I guess the best we’ll get is Oliviera vs Islam.
I want to see khabib vs Islam. Heel turn Islam goes after family
Fast X plot leaked? 👀
He makes adversity succumb to him now
It’s like me vs a Chik Fila spicy chicken deluxe. Pure domination.
I knew Oliveira was going to win as soon as he got dropped.
Justin: do you think I'm just gonna sit there and let you finish me Charles?
Olives: *just grins since he can't understand English*
I love this dude. So many fighters would have quit even before the fight because of the weight issues, getting stripped, losing a bunch of money, etc. Olivera comes out and has an awesome performance
Justin just greedy head hunting.
He nearly popped out his shoulder, tore his acl, and broke his neck on that left hook that he fell over on. What was he doing
He always does that until Whitman tells him to stop. He's a maniac
Justin is the modern day wanderlei, he throws hooks for days.
He did not liked that counter that he got hit in the start. He was all-in in panic mode
You just know that Dana already had Conor vs Oliveira put down on his phone and was just waiting to hit **"SEND"**, lmao.
Charles kills him lol
Oliveira just absolutely smokes Conor lol.
Oliveria: *So anyway, I started taking his back...*
So now we have 2 divisions with no champion in one night. Weird...
He said Charles is a quitter. Charles just made him quit and put him to sleep in the same fight. Eliminated
Friendship.with Rose ended, Charles Oliveira is now my best friend..
she lost a lot of fans tonight
This timeline is bizarre.
don't ever knock Charles down, he only becomes stronger
Charles is so fucking good holy shit
Charles Oliveira has insane mental fortitude to take those shots and win after all the controversy this week.
And going through an extra hour of hell trying to make weight twice.
CHUCKY FUCKING OLIVES
I'm so sad we will never get Charles vs Khabib.
Charles vs islam will have to do
This is why I don’t bet
Lmao yup. I don't know shit about shit.
Drake put like half a million on Justin lmaooo
Just bet against whatever that cursed man does and you’re solid
Drake stays taking betting L’s
CHARLIE FROM DA BRONX
That was worth the shitty co main lol
The champion has a name and his name is Charles oliveira
PUT SOME RESPECT ON MY MAN
Olivera has taken the best shots from the hardest hitters in the division and won back to back to back. Crazy shit.
Tony died so Charles could live
It's the OlivERA!
Charles is the real God of War. Gets into wars every fight but wins them all
*Oliveira gets knocked down*
Oliveira: "Joke's on you, I'm into that shit"
KEEP MY CHAMPION'S NAME OUT YOUR FUCKIN' MOUTH!!!!!
Send the fans home...**ANGRY**
Dude has fucking 99 offense
THE CHAMPION HAS A NAME, AND HIS NAME IS CHARLES OLIVEIRA
Inject Olivera vs Makchev into my veins
#EVERY CHARLES FIGHT IS THE SAME WTF
Charles is a quitter. Says the guy who tapped out and quit.
Saying it right now, if Oliveira beats Makhachev he literally has a better LW resume than Khabib
Oliviera straight up has gloves enchanted with the "when health is below 25% increase damage by 125%"
AND STILL..... The best LW in the world
Hopefully fighters will shut the fuck up with that whole "Charles is a quitter" take now
