Round 1: Oliviera and Tibau begin with the fighters trading shots patiently on the feet. A nice left hand by Tibau later leads to a takedown which lands him in his opponent’s halfguard. Tibau stacks his opponent, but the two get to the feet and Tibau lands a punch in the process. The two patiently pick shots into the end of the opening round.
Round 2: The second round begins with Tibau moving forward and landing a stiff jab. A one-two combo by Tibau leads to him eating an Oliveira jab. Tibau gets the takedown and lands in his opponent’s guard. Back on the feet, they clinch and Tibau lands a clean uppercut and drops Oliveira. He rushes his opponent and mounts his back where he lands punches and sinks in the rear-naked-choke for the submission win.
Official call: Gleison Tibau defeats Rafaello via submission (rear naked choke) at 3:28 of round two.
