UFC fighter Charles Oliveira (30-8)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Since Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira moved up to the lightweight division, he has been one of the very best in the world and is the dark horse of the division.

Oliveira is currently riding an eight-fight winning streak, finishing all but one of his opponents.

‘Do Brox’ has been in the UFC for ten years already, entering the biggest fight organization when he was 21 years old. CRAZY.

Since 2010, Oliveira has added some UFC records to his resume. He currently has the most submissions wins with 14, most Performance of the Night awards in UFC history with 10, and most submission wins in the UFC Featherweight division history. He is also tied with Donald Cerrone, with most finishes in UFC history with 16.

Oliveira is coming off the biggest win of his career at UFC 256, where he absolutely dominated Tony Ferguson, who was ranked No. 3 in the lightweight division.

Oliveira returns at UFC 262 agaisnt Michael Chandler for the vacant UFC lightweight title. After 11 years inside the UFC and ups and downs that came with it, “Do Bronx” finally gets his title shot.
