The man from Brazil is going to be the second undisputed champion who is going to be crowned as recently the undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov has retired being the 155-pound category champion which happened in the past October.
Oliveira was struggling a bit at the start of the match but as the match went on he found his form and went on to hit Chandler with a left hook which was a perfect blow for the cameras and then further went on to hit him with some powerful strikes and it got to a point where he is just pounding Chandler and Dan Mirgliotta who was the ref for the match had no choice but to stop the match as Chandler was completely blown away by the shots and the match ended in the second round within 19 seconds.
It is the ninth straight victory for the new champ as he stated after the win that he has shown that he is Lion of Lions and has proven that he is the best that UFC has to offer in the lightweight division.
if you talk about the co-main event which was between Tony Ferguson and Beneil Dariush in which Dariush dominated the match as it looked like that Tony Ferguson had no counterplay against him and he has definitely become a strong contender who has the potential to challenge Chandler for the lightweight belt.
It seems like that the lightweight division is really getting interesting as the best of best are going to fight out in the coming months for the title and Michael Chandler is really going to justify having the belt as he has been in tremendous form for the past 9 matches as he is undefeated and it seems like that the winning streak is going to increase as the way he is fighting out right now, it is going to be difficult for the other fighters in the lightweight division to snatch away the belt from him.
