Alex Oliveira has pretty much secured a post-fight bonus for himself with this thunderous KO of Piotr Hallmann at UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson 3 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. “Cowboy” had dominated Hallmann standing for much of the fight, but arguably lost round 2 when Hallmann was able to outduel him on the ground. Oliveira sealed the win in round 3 with one hard right hand, followed by another one that sent him toppling like a chopped down tree. Here’s the footage, courtesy of UFC on FOX:

Here’s Dallas Winston’s play-by-play:
R3: Oliveira lands a right up-knee and same-side punch. Glancing check hook lands for Hallman. Hallman doubles up on left hooks and Oliveira ducks them to unload a scorching right to the jaw. Hallman topples over and goes flat on the canvas.
Oliveira finishes the year 3-1 in the UFC, and this was by far his most impressive performance to date. Hallmann has lost 3 in a row and his UFC future is surely in doubt.
