According to Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission head Gregory Sirb, Charles Oliveira_s victory over Nik Lentz in a preliminary lightweight bout at UFC Live 4 has officially been overturned. The record books will now reflect a â€œno contestâ€, rather than a victory for the talented Brazilian.
During the fight, which streamed via the UFCâ€™s facebook page, Oliviera landed an illegal knee to the face of Lentz. The knee went unnoticed by the referee, and not only enabled â€œDo Bronxâ€ to secure a fight ending rear-naked choke, but also broke Lentzâ€™s right orbital bone.
With the initial ruling now overturned, Charles Olivieraâ€™s UFC record stands at 2-1-1, while Nik "The Carny" Lentz is still technically undefeated at 5-0-1-1.
