Charles Oliveira is on some kind of roll.

The Brazilian inched closer to a lightweight title shot in the UFC Fight Night 170 headliner, as he submitted Kevin Lee with a guillotine choke in the third round of their bout at Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil on Saturday. It was an unusual environment for a fight card, as the ongoing threat of the coronavirus forced the athletes to compete in an empty venue. But fans or no fans, there are still plenty of facts and figures to examine from happenings at the event.

Here is a by-the-numbers look at UFC Fight Night 170, with statistics courtesy of FightMetric.com.

7: Consecutive finishes for Oliveira, tying him with Chuck Liddell for the second-longest finishing streak in UFC history. Only Anderson Silva (eight) has more. The Brazilian’s seven-bout winning streak is also the third-longest active winning streak in the lightweight division behind only Tony Ferguson (12) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (11).

16: Career finishes for Oliveira, tying him with Donald Cerrone for the most in UFC history.

43: Significant strikes landed by “Do Bronx.” The Brazilian outlanded Lee 28 to 16 in Round 2 and 10 to 2 in Round 3 prior to the fight-ending submission.

2: Submission attempts by Oliveira. He has attempted 32 during his promotional tenure, second-most in UFC history behind Jim Miller (42). The streaking lightweight moved past Chris Lytle (31) on Saturday.

3-0: Welterweight record for Gilbert Burns, who defeated Demian Maia via technical knockout 2:34 into the opening round of their co-main event encounter. Burns has won five straight UFC bouts overall, including two at 155 pounds.

0:44: Time of Renato Carneiro’s rear-naked choke submission of Damir Hadzovic, making it the eighth-fastest submission in UFC lightweight history.

3: Takedowns landed in eight attempts landed by Nikita Krylov in a grinding decision triumph over Johnny Walker. That’s a UFC career best for “The Miner,” who had only landed more than one takedown just once in his previous 12 Octagon appearances.

14: UFC wins for Francisco Trinaldo, tying him for the fifth most in the history of the lightweight division. The 41-year-old Brazilian outpointed John Makdessi in a featured lightweight encounter on Saturday.
