It took a while, but the electric Brazilian striker eventually took out Hallman before a hometown crowd.

HIGHLIGHTS! Thomas Almeida, Vitor Belfort Steal Sao Paulo Show With Killer KOs!

He made the mixed martial arts (MMA) masses wait, but talented Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight prospect Alex Oliveira sure delivered a brutal knockout.

"Cowboy" came into his fight against the well-rounded Polish combatant Piotr Hallmann at UFC Fight Night 77 inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil last night (Sat., Nov. 7, 2015) a winner of two-straight and an owner of eight career knockout victories.

Oliveira immediately came out with something to prove, setting an unforgiving pace that overwhelmed "Pletwal." Hallmann ate a series of uppercuts in the clinch and some heavy punches throughout the duration of the initial frame.

In the second round, Oliveira's efforts to finish the bout were stunted by a well-timed takedown from Hallmann, who was able to connect on some hard right hands. However, the 27-year-old withstood the offensive and eventually took the back of Hallmann, but slipped off, nullifying any momentum he had built in the process.

Finally, in round three, it came time for Oliveira to put a definitive stamp on what had been a mostly fun tilt up until that point by landing a crisp right flush on the jaw of Hallmann.
