UFC veteran Alex Oliveira scores wild knockout against Titan FC 82 opponent with judo throw

It’s not often (if ever) that you see an MMA fight end in a judo throw, but that’s exactly what happened for former UFC welterweight Alex Oliveira.

At Titan FC 82 at SPENS 02 in Novi Sad, Serbia, Oliveira (25-14-1 MMA) threw a hard shot at Stefan Sekulic with about 70 seconds left in the first round. The fight aired live Friday night on UFC Fight Pass.

Sekulic (14-8 MMA) was pressing Oliveira against the cage with double hooks when Oliveira crossed with his right leg and hit the judo throw. Sekulic appeared to come out of impact with the canvas, and Oliveira landed a quick follow-up punch before standing up and walking away from the stage as the referee rushed to call the fight.

The finish marked a return to the win column for Oliveira, who dropped his previous outing in April.

Under the UFC banner, “Cowboy” Oliviera has shared the octagon with a number of key names including Carlos Condit, Gunnar Nelson, Max Griffin, Shavkat Rakhmonov, Kevin Holland and Donald Cerrone, among others.

Since exiting the UFC last March after an 11-10 run with the promotion, Oliveira is now 3-2, with each victory coming via first-round stoppage. Win or lose, Oliveira always makes for an exciting fight, and his latest finish is certainly one of the most unique in recent memory.
