Not only did Gleison Tibau pick up his ninth win this evening, defeating Rafaello Oliviera by submission on the preliminary undercard of UFC 130. He also earned a submission of the night bonus, winning $70,000.
Many consider Tibau (23-7) to be a gatekeeper, but the only losses of his UFC career have been to top fighters. He hasn't lost to any up-and-comers in the division, and he has defeated most and lost some very close decisions.
His appearance on a main card of a upcoming Fight Night event could be an appealing attraction if the opponent is right.
These are the five best options for the Brazilian lightweight fighter.
