Before making his UFC debut this past Sunday, Charles “do Bronx” Oliveira deservedly earned his place in the world’s biggest MMA organization.
He notched ten wins in Brazil and the experience of having fought in two GP’s against, against bigger opponents in back-to-back fights. At just 20 years of age, he also won two fights in the USA before his maiden incursion into the UFC.
One of the traits Charles always displays in his MMA fights is sharp Jiu-Jitsu, although his record is tied at six submissions and six knockouts. Thus it was no surprise to see him tap out Darren Elkins at UFC on Versus 2, bagging him the submission of the night bonus. The Bronx’s Gold Team representative won’t have an easy time in the hairy lightweight division, but one can expect him to make a lot of noise.
