UFC On ESPN+ 28 Results – Charles Oliveira Finishes Kevin Lee With a Guillotine
Charles Oliveira picked up probably the biggest win of his career with a submission victory over Interim title challenger Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC on ESPN+28 at an empty Ginasio Nilson Nelson in Brasilia, Brazil, due to the COVID 19 worldwide epidemic.
Charles Oliveira, who has always been full of talent but never really had that big stage to showcase them, finished off Lee with a Guillotine Chole, 29 seconds into the third round of their bout which was contested at a catch weight of 158.5 pounds.
Oliveira’s finish over Lee mean, he has now won his last seven bouts via finishes and now ties Donald Cerone‘s record of 16 finishes under the UFC banner.
Kevin Lee does his thing using majorly his wrestling so it wasn’t surprising when he went for the first takedown but Oliveira capitalised, immediately going in for Leg Locks and Heel Locks. However Lee’s wrestling is so good, he finds it easy to escape such attempts.
