Joseph Henle, Tiger Muay Thai head coach, breaks down the lightweight title clash between Charles Oliveira and Dustin Poirier at UFC 269.

Henle on Oliveira’s evolution:

“I don’t think anybody has evolved like Charles Oliveira has evolved.

“A beautiful example of jiu jitsu in aggressive motion. What he did to Tony Ferguson and Tony Ferguson is lights out. You know, submission defense, the way he was able to get out of the armbar. He was always in a position that kept Charles from really landing big damage but Charles was always in a position to get near a submission. 

“Is [Dustin Poirier] good enough on the ground for Charles Oliveira? You may even ask, is he good enough on the feet for Charles. Charles is playing a much different game.”
