Charles Oliveira Mars Beautiful Performance With Illegal Knee At UFC Live 4

Charles Oliveira looked every bit a 21 year old phenom with championship potential against Nik Lentz at UFC Live 4. He outstruck Lentz on the feet and utterly out grappled him on the ground. Unfortunately a near masterpiece of a fight was ruined when Oliveira landed a blatantly illegal knee to the face of Lentz. 

Poor reffing by Chip Snyder allowed the fight to continue without flagging the foul and Oliveira pressed his advantage mercilessly and finished Lentz quickly by rear naked choke.

UFC on Versus 4 results: Charles Oliveira defeats Nik Lentz by submission (rear naked choke) at 1:48 of round 2.

Announcer Joe Rogan spoke to the commission after the fight and they said they would issue a ruling on the outcome of the fight. For now it goes in the record books as a win for Charles Oliveira but it may be overturned upon review.

That's too bad because Oliveira fought brilliantly against the formidable Lentz. Landing knees to the face, scoring a dramatic Judo take down, and besting Lentz in a brilliant back-and-forth display of skilled grappling.
