Charles Oliveira Wiki Update Wiki

The charismatic and remarkably talented "do Bronx" Charles Oliveira burst onto the scene in 2010, where he was arguably the UFCs breakthrough fighter of the year after scintillating back-to-back wins over Darren Elkins and the heavily favored Efrain Escudero. Oliveira stopped both men inside the distance with Submission of the Night-earning performances, Elkins with a polished triangle choke / armbar combination from guard and Escudero with a standing RNC. With those two victories, and the in-cage panache and youthful exuberance Oliveira displayed in securing them, a potential star was born.


An immensely talented youngster with a carefree style, Oliveira throws freely on the feet with rangy kicks and punches and shows little regard for getting taken down. That is little surprise as he also sports one of the more dangerous submission games in the lightweight division. As Oliveira seasons he has already been pegged as a possible title contender in the coming years.


But Oliveira - born 1989 - was also young, and despite an undefeated record built mainly in smaller promotions in Brazil, relatively inexperienced. It caught up to him at UFC 124 in late 2010, where "do Bronx" suffered his first career loss via kneebar submission at the hands of Jim Miller. Since then he has gone 2-2 with 1 no contest racking up victories over Eric Wisely and Jonathan Brookins. He would then face off against Frankie Edgar who was looking for his first win at featherweight and Oliveira would lose a decision to the former champ


He would get back in the win column with a third round triangle choke over Andy Ogle that would also earn him a Performance of the Night. He will look to make it two straight when he faces Hatsu Hioki at UFC Fight Night 43.
