  • Charles Oliveira is the former UFC Lightweight Champion.
  • Oliveira holds the most submission victories in the UFC with 16.

Charles Oliveira is one of Brazil’s MMA superstars and a former undisputed lightweight champion. Although he lost to Islam Makhachev in his last fight in October 2022, he still holds the record for the most submissions in UFC history with 16, making him a favorite name in online sports betting via the UFC odds. Before losing to Makhachev, Oliveira amassed an 11-straight win streak which began in June 2018.

“Do Bronx” is the number one-ranked lightweight contender and seventh in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound fighters. A bounce-back victory could earn him another outright opportunity for the title, but when will Oliveira return inside the Octagon, and who will be his next opponent?

When is Charles Oliveira’s Next Fight?

Charles Oliveira’s next fight is still being determined, although a title rematch with Islam Makhachev is a strong possibility (given that Makhachev wins his first title defense against Alexander Volkanoski this February in UFC 284). Another possible opponent for the former champion is the number four-ranked contender Beneil Dariush, who is on a hot streak right now with eight straight victories.
