Oliveira, Esparza and Chandler win

Oliveira, Esparza and Chandler win

Charles Oliveira did a quick run with Justin Gethje on Saturday at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, and won the submission in 3:22 of the first round.

The former lightweight champion, who was stripped of his belt after losing the championship weight on Friday by half a pound, became the number one contender in the division and will contend for the vacant title in his next fight.

In the co-main event, Carla Esparza did just enough against Rose Namagunas to win by split decision and reclaim the strawweight title she first won eight years ago in the season 20 finale of “The Ultimate Fighter.”
