Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira scored and early take down and it looked like early on this could be a competitive fight. Swanson is no slouch on the ground but "Do Bronx" is an absolute killer. However, Swanson got back to his feet, where he clearly has the advantage all day. Oliveira a nice knee and used his length to his advantage, but the speed of Swanson made it very easy for him to get inside.

It all started with a left hook to the body took, and it was all down hill from there for young Charles. The wind went right out of Oliveira, and as he tried to hide his agony and recover, he ate a monster right from Mr. Swanson. Swanson saw the pain in his opponents face and then proceeded to land a haymaker right on his dome.

Swanson has been on a terror this year. Oliveira wasn't knocked out on his feet, he just literally crumbled from the sheer power of Cub Swanson.

Final Result: Cub Swanson (18-5) defeats Charles Oliveira (16-3) via KO (Round 1, 2:40)
