No Contest: Charles Oliveira vs Nik Lentz decision overturned by Pennsylvania Athletic Commission


Sorry, Charlie.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu whiz kid Charles Oliveira saw his submission win over Nik Lentz at UFC on Versus 4 last Sunday night (June 26) overturned to a "No Contest" after the bout was reviewed by the Pennsylvania Athletic Commission.

"Do Bronx" did bad, crushing Lentz with an illegal knee while "The Carny" was grounded, which somehow escaped referee Chip Snider's field of vision. Oliveira continued to pour it on and finished the job via rear naked choke at 1:48 of the second round.

MMA Weekly has more:

The decision was handed down on Wednesday from Executive Director Greg Sirb.

"After review of the tape of this contest and after consultation with the referee the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission has ruled that the results of this match will be changed to a no contest," the statement read.

"This change is a direct result from an accidental kick to the head by Mr. Oliveira to a grounded Mr. Lentz."

Do you agree with the ruling?
