In MMA you don't what is going to happen. That is why you have the fight.

The first fight ever shown on FOX, Velasquez vs. Dos Santos, was too short. The second set of fights shown on FOX were too long, without a single KO or submssion. But the undercard on FUEL offered spectacular finishes, including a H--- F------ S--- calf slice, the first in UFC history.

"I didn't create that," said Charles Oliveira of the Unique Technique of the Year candidate he sunk on  Eric Wisely. "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."

The submissions earned Olveira an additional $65,000 for Submission of the Night.

Said Vinny Magalhaes, via Twitter, "Wow,I don't know what surprised me the most.The calf slicer submission, or someone tap to that. I mean, I didn't even know that s--- worked."

Brief demonstration of the Calf Slice from The History Channel's Human Weapon:

I was surprised Rogan did not identify it as a calf slicer. I'm pretty sure Eddie teaches bicep and calf slicers. Phone Post

  Great job by Olivera to catch it, though.

That wasn't in the UFC. It was a local show in Montreal. Phone Post

 Craziest part is that before Barboza landed the famous kick this year, during their fight like a minute before it Goldberg was doing a promo for UFC on Demand or something and apparently the focus this month is 'UFC Firsts'. Moments later Etim was KO'd by a UFC first.

Now Oliviera has added a second one within the same month - good job fellas!

That was such an awesome series of events to watch. I wish all of the prelims were still available on facebook so more people would have had the chance to see this when it happened live. Phone Post

eagleswhat1 - I caught one on a certain former M-1 fighter over at Norcal Aliance. He trains at ATT and can't feel pain. He just smiled at me and said no no keep going its okay....crazy eastern europeans....... Watch him escape about 20 subs over Nakamura.......not Kaz

 I've tapped to it in training. But I thought 'pro's' wouldn't tap to something like that.

ChokeEmOut - Some people don't seem affected by subs like these but for those who do its brutal. Phone Post
Keep it on long enough....they'll tap. Eventually the knee will just....explode. More of a sambo move though I thought? Phone Post

Similar to Dos Anjos/Griffin but somehow Griffin fought through it.

He spun for a kneebar from top half guard, not a calf slicer Phone Post

I was wondering what that's called. At first when I saw it in real-time I didn't understand why Wisely was screaming in pain like that. Amazing submission.

I'm glad for Oliveira too, had a rough patch last year, but he clearly belongs in the UFC.
