Oliveira (34-9 MMA) was returning to action for the first time since suffering a submission loss to Islam Makhachev last October at UFC 280 in a fight for the undisputed lightweight world title. Prior to that setback, ‘Do Bronx’ had put together a sensational eleven-fight win streak which included victories over Michael Chandler, Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.

Meanwhile, Beneiel Dariush (22-5-1 MMA) entered UFC 289 sporting an eight-fight win streak, his most recent being a unanimous decision victory over Mateusz Gamrot in October of last year. The 34-year-old had not tasted defeat since March of 2018 when he was knocked out by Alexander Hernandez.

Tonight’s UFC 289 co-main event resulted in another first-round finish for Charles Oliveira. After being taken down early in the fight, the former lightweight champion was able to scramble back to his feet and lands a thunderous head kick. Beneil Dariush was clearly rocked from the strike and dove for a takedown. Oliveira was able to take top position and once he did it was nothing but hammers to score the victory.
