A longtime featherweight contender, Brazilian Oliveira really found his rhythm by returning to the lightweight division in 2017. Since then he has gone 9-1, scoring eight straight wins over Tony Ferguson, Kevin Lee and Jim Miller on his way to first UFC title fight against Chandler, a former Bellator champion who made an immediate impact on his UFC debut in January by knocking out Dan Hooker in less than three minutes.
