WNO 22: Diego Oliveira Submits Dante Leon For WNO Lightweight Championship

Diego Oliveira won the WNO Lightweight Championship at WNO 22 at Costa Mesa, California against Dante Leon.

Feb 10, 2024 by Joe Harrington

Diego Oliveira won the Featherweight WNO title at the final WNO event of 2023. He won the another belt in the first WNO of 2024.

"Pato" Oliveira went up a weight class after beating Diogo "Baby Shark" Reis in at WNO 21 but he didn't stay at the weight class. He called out Dante Leon shortly after winning the featherweight title and on Feb. 9 in Costa Mesa, Calif. he submitted Leon for the Lightweight WNO Championship.  

Oliveira became a two-division champion when he used a heelhook to beat the champion Leon. 

Entering WNO 22, Leon was the No. 4-ranked pound-for-pound no-gi grappler, one spot ahead of Oliveira.
