Tibau vs. Oliveira Wiki Update Wiki

Gleison Tibau took on late replacement Rafaello Oliveira in the third bout of UFC 130, live on Facebook.com.


Two of the bigger lightweights in the division, the men jousted early until Tibau broke through with an early takedown. Oliveira quickly reversed out of the position and the men returned to their feet. Another takedown from Tibau shortly thereafter but Oliveira is accounting himself well on the bottom, working quickly out of trouble. The fight is close on the feet but round one goes to Tibau on account of his takedowns.


The second round is a carbon copy of the first until a short left hand from Tibau stuns Oliveira against the cage, and Tibau quickly follows up with heavy shots against his helpless foe. Oliveira survives for another brief few moments, but Tibau seizes his back and secures the Rear Naked Choke for a clean and impressive victory in what was a close fight only moments before.


The winner is Gleison Tibau via Rear Naked Choke in round two, for his ninth win in the Octagon.
