Charles Oliveira Receives 60 Day Suspension Following UFC 210 Win
By FCF Staff
Charles Oliveira’s victory celebration at UFC 210 last weekend has reportedly landed him a 60 day suspension.
The noted submission artist tapped out Will Brooks in the opening round with a rear-naked-choke, and then proceeded to climb out of the Octagon. Since then, the New York State Athletic Commission has confirmed with MMA Junkie that the organization has administratively suspended Oliveira for 60 days, as a result of his actions.
The victory returned Oliveira to the win column, as the Brazilian was coming off consecutive, submission defeats to Ricardo Lamas and Anthony Pettis.
