    "Flash" Gordon sucks. Why did Olivera have to fight this dude. Basically a 3 month delay in his career.

    UFC need a brazilian to win at least one of the main fights. To prevent the crowd go full ape after Shogun and Souza get koed.

    Oliveira couldn't beat anyone decent so that's what they gave him.

    I hope he gets a higher ranked opponent next. No clue why they had him fight this dude.

    Well both Times they had him fight a higher opponent he failed. Obviously seems to have improved a lot. Definetly give him a third chance.

    Give him someone that can beat him then. Dude is number 10 and anyone below that gets embarrassed.

    Idk about that but at least give him that shot. He's known to get dominated by top guys but don't step him back.

    The UFC is about marketing first. Can't overhype a marketable guy if he keeps losing. Feed him cans until fans buy into him again, then sell him as a main event where he gets demolished again.

    From what I understand, Oliveira wanted to fight specifically on this card. The guys who are ranked or thought highly of/have name value either declined to fight him or wanted the fight to happen at a later date.
