“They don’t want to wrestle with me but I do everything that I can.", Oleinik said after the match.

The Ukrainian-born Russian mixed martial artist attempted the takedown soon after the bell rang and also tried his famous Ezekiel chokes which Greene resisted. While avoiding Greene's strikes, Aleksei weathered the storm and eventually secured the takedown. He then held Greene's belly and did not let him escape. 

The former Ultimate Fighter contender tapped out to avoid further damage to his arm.
