Alex Oliveira on securing the submission: “Yeah, he went to sleep, and I changed grips on him, and he woke up, and I had to finish it, so I went and tightened it again. And then he tapped.”

Oliveira on what was going on before this fight: “One of my aunts died as soon I got here. My uncle’s in the hospital. I don’t even know how he is, but you know, I had to come and fight.”

His thoughts on what’s next: “A week of rest, and then I’ll start training again, and I’ll be … training for the next one.”
