Vinicius Oliveira came prepared in more ways than one to win a UFC contract.
Kicking off the festivities at Dana White’s Contender Series 64, Oliveira (19-3) made a statement against Victor Madrigal. In the first round, Oliveira landed a devastating left hook that sent Madrigal (12-4) crashing to the canvas for a walk-off knockout.
To put the icing on the cake, someone from Oliveira’s team tossed him a writing pen, and then the Brazilian bantamweight went over to UFC CEO Dana White, signaling that he’s ready to sign his UFC contract.

The result was Oliveira’s second-straight first-round knockout, and the 15th of his career overall.
White appeared very impressed with the finish and his post-fight antics with the pen, which are signs that usually point to a fighter receiving a UFC contract at the end of the show.
