Charles Oliveira Arman Tsarukyan UFC 300 choke

In a thrilling showdown at UFC 300 over the weekend, Charles Oliveira engaged in a tense battle with Arman Tsarukyan, ultimately succumbing to Tsarukyan’s prowess in a narrow split decision at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Reflecting on the match during an interview with Canal Encarada on Tuesday, the former UFC champion revealed his belief that Tsarukyan had briefly lost consciousness during a third-round D’Arce choke attempt. Oliveira recounted the moment, saying, “With just 30 seconds left, I had him in a tight D’Arce choke, one of my favorite submissions. I even thought he went out, hence my tongue-in-cheek expression. However, it’s all part of the game.”
