Free Fight: Charles Oliveira submits Darren Elkins

This weekend, at UFC Fight Night 36, Charles Oliveira opens up the main card on Fox Sports 1 as he takes on TUF Live alumnus, Andy Ogle. Oliveira, once a feared prospect, has lost two in a row at Featherweight and needs to put on a stellar performance Saturday night to keep his job secure.

In preparation of the event, the UFC has released one of Oliveira’s best performances to date; his 41 second armbar finish over Darren Elkins at UFC Live: Jones vs Matyushenko. Watch the fight in it’s entirety in the video above.

UFC Fight Night 36 is headlined by a critical Middleweight tilt between Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi. Dana White has stated that if Machida defeats Mousasi, he will be next in line for a Middleweight title shot. Mousasi will certainly look to relish his chance at stopping the hype train that Machida is currently riding and replace it with his name.
