Matchup: JIm Miller vs Charles Oliveira
The UFC matchmakers did well in pitting two of the most experienced grapplers in the lightweight division against each other this Saturday. Miller and Oliveira are both seasoned veterans of the promotion with 20 Performance of the Night bonuses split between them. Oliveira broke the record for most submission wins in UFC history in his last bout with a rear-naked choke in the second round against Christos Giagos. Miller is coming off a rear-naked choke victory of his own against Alex White that snapped a four-fight losing streak.
Both men are aggressive finishers. Oliveira's average bout time is 6:58. Miller ended his last fight in 1:29. Miller goes for a takedown, but in the scramble he exposes his neck to Oliveira, who locks in a guillotine choke for the win midway through the first round.
