Brazil series ~ Volume forty four. Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira
Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira (20-2-0) hailing from Sao Paulo, Brazil is a veteran of Predador FC, Jungle Fight, Ring of Combat and UFC with 6 wins via knockout and 9 by submission. Fighting out of the Bronx Gold Team in Sao Paulo and coached by Jorge Macaco in Houston Texas, Charles Oliveira is a highly talented fighter with great Muay Thai and amazing Jiu Jitsu. He began fighting at light weight in 2008 impressively going a 12-0 which included winning two one night tournaments. In 2010 he was signed by the UFC and making an impressive debut against Darren Elkins winning via arm bar in 41 seconds. Charles followed that up with a rear naked choke over Ultimate Fighter winner Efrain Escudero. In 2011 after losing two fights to larger experienced Lightweights it became apparent Charles was better suited to fighting at 145 lbs. At the beginning of 2012 he made his featherweight debut with an amazing calf slicer submission over Eric Wisely. Charles would then follow that win over another Ultimate Fighter winner in Jonathan Brookins with an anaconda choke. Charles Oliveira is highly skilled and highly talented at only 22 years old, I believe he is the future of the division and a future champion.
