The UFC on Fox 2: "'Evans vs. Davis" main card on network television may not have delivered like fans surely hoped it would but the FUEL TV broadcasted portion of the "Prelims" sure as hell did.

That's because it featured stoppages galore, including the very first calf slicer submission finish in the history of the UFC courtesy of Charles Oliveira, who nearly took Eric Wisely's leg back to Brazil with him.

In a post-fight interview with Ariel Helwani, Oliveira described how he got to that move:

"I didn't create that, my teacher taught me that. The MMA world has a lot of submissions like that and I train hard for that in this position. I started with a heel hook and he defended, I went to the knee bar and he defended and then I got the calf lock. I never did this before in tournaments but I train every day this position in the gym."

Not only did "Do Bronx" make a successful debut in the featherweight division, he also earned a cool $65 large for "Submission of the Night" honors. Not a bad night at the office, if you ask me.

Hear more from Oliveria after the jump, including more on his big win and his desire to fight on the card when the UFC travels back to Brazil in June in Sao Paulo.
