Edwards vs. Oliveira Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of UFC on Versus 6 featured Rafaello "Tractor" Oliveira taking on Yves "The Gunslinger" Edwards in a lightweight fight. Edwards entered the fight at 40-17-1 overall and 8-5 in the UFC. Oliveira came into the bout at 14-4 overall and 1-3 in the UFC.


Oliveira threw a head kick to begin and swarmed forward towards Edwards into the clinch. Edwards sustained a cut on his right eyebrow and was generally defensive through the first minute and a half. A missed high kick from Edwards and Oliveira's pace slowed down to a more manageable level. Edwards threw a nice combination and Oliveira countered with a right hand at the end. Edwards connected with a nice low kick and then one to the body, finding his range and timing. Oliveira attempted his first takedown of the match, nearly getting Edwards down, but good defense kept "The Gunslinger" off of his back and scrambling up.


Edwards landed a low kick to begin the second round. Oliveira plowed forward but was denied in his attempts to land a takedown and ate a knee on the way back up. Edwards dropped Oliveira with a counter-right to the temple and landed a couple more on the ground with the fight looking to be on the verge of stopped. Oliveira made his way back up to his feet and swung with wild punches, but Edwards landed a left high kick that dropped Oliveira once more. Oliveira ate right hand after right hand on the ground until getting flattened out finally stopped.


The official end came by way of TKO with Yves Edwards winning at 2:44 of the second round. Speaking to Joe Rogan in the post-fight interview, Edwards commented, "I know Rafaello is a really tough guy, he seems to fade a little bit but he stayed strong in this one... I took a page from my last fight... Ultimately I'm just a guy fighting in front of a crowd, asking them to love me."
