This Is How The MMA World Reacted To UFC Sao Paulo
UFC Sao Paulo went down on Saturday night at the Ginasio do Ibirapuera, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the main event, Brazil’s very own ‘Jacare’ Souza came up just short in his light heavyweight debut against Poland’s Jan Blachowicz, losing via split decision.
The UFC Sao Paulo co-main event also saw another Brazilian favourite, as MMA legend ‘Shogun’ Rua faced Scotland’s Paul Craig, who was a late replacement for Sam Alvey, after he was forced to withdraw due to a broken hand. After three round of action, the fight was declared a split draw.
Elsewhere on the card, Charles Oliveira scored a first round knockout over Jared Gordon. This was the Brazilian’s sixth straight win via stoppage, his fifteenth finish in the UFC, and his fifteenth post fight bonus award. Only ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone has more finishes and post fight bonuses than Oliveira in the UFC now.
