Ednaldo Oliveira is a Brazilian mixed martial artist currently competing in the light heavyweight division.
Oliveira made his MMA debut in Salvador, Brazil as a heavyweight and continued to fight in Salvador for most of his early career. In his 7th fight Oliveira fought PRIDE veteran Edson Claas Vieira and won the fight after Vieira suffered an ankle injury just one minute into the first round.
With his impressive resume, Oliveira signed with the UFC and was set to make his promotional debut on January 14, 2012 at UFC 142 in Brazil against Rob Broughton.
