Alex Oliveira scored the most impressive victory of his career on Saturday night at UFC on FOX 29 in Glendale, Az. Oliveira got the better of a fighter that he looked up to, a fighter that inspired him. Oliveira defeated former interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit.
That was no easy task either. Although Condit is in the midst of a rough patch in his career, he looked as good as ever on Saturday night, but Oliveira still managed to submit him with a guillotine choke midway through the second round.
While Oliveira admitted as much about Condit, he wasn’t about to downplay his own status, proclaiming, “I’m part of the new generation and I came here to take my spot.”
