This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
Charles Oliveira has been looked at as one of the most talented, young prospects in the sport since his UFC debut, but there are no guarantees that success will follow with a change in weight class.
For Oliveira, the move appeared to work out pretty well however after submitting Eric Wisely at UFC on Fox 2, pulling out an amazing calf slicer submission.
Following the win, Oliveira spoke to MMAWeekly.com about the weight cut, the transitions he made to get the submission, and if he thinks he should get the 'Submission of the Night' award.
