Charles Oliveira, known as the most successful submission artist in UFC history, has now knocked out his past two opponents.

Oliveira starched Jared Gordon in the co-headliner of UFC Sao Paulo on Saturday, extending his current winning streak to six fights and adding another piece of highlight-reel footage to his decorated career.

Gordon walked into a right hand one minute after the featured lightweight bout, and Oliveira finished the American off with more punches to force referee intervention at the 1:26 mark of the opening frame.

Check out the finish here:

Oliveira leaped over the fence and bounced around the cage as he celebrated. The crowd at Ginasio do Ibirapuera ate it up.

Not content with another quick stoppage, Oliveira then called out former two-division champ Conor McGregor. Acutely aware of that tall order, the Brazilian hedged his bets with a second request – Paul Felder, the most recent opponent to defeat him.
