A fighter in serious form is Charles ‘Do Bronx’ Oliveira, who truly turned the corner in 2018 to embark on an incredible six-fight winning run – all of which were finishes within two rounds. Having entered the UFC at 20-years-old, the Brazilian has been somewhat of a journeyman to this point; going through ebbs and flows as he struggled to overcome the next level of competition, all while being forced to move back up to 155lbs after missing weight four times in his featherweight stint. Number six lightweight Paul Felder is the only man to have defeated Oliveira at 155lbs since his return, with fans and promotors alike taking notice of his new lease on life. While ‘Do Bronx’ is renowned for his ground game given he boasts the most ever UFC submission wins (13), two consecutive T/KO wins suggest he is hitting a peak as a more rounded mixed martial artist. Oliveira could well be a top-fiver in many other divisions, but will have to continue to wade through the deep waters at lightweight to truly make his mark.
