— UFC (@ufc) May 14, 2021
A longtime featherweight contender, Brazil’s Oliveira truly found his groove when returning to the lightweight division in 2017. Since then, he has gone 9-1, winning eight straight over the likes of Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee and Jim Miller on his way to his first #UFC title fight against Chandler, a former #Bellator champion who made an immediate impact in his UFC debut in January by knocking out Dan Hooker in less than three minutes.
