CHARLES DO BRONX OLIVERA ROUND ONE KNOCKOUT 🤯
— The Athletic (@TheAthletic) June 11, 2023
Because of that impressive win, “Do Bronx” retained his position as the number one-ranked lightweight contender. But is it enough to earn him another shot for the title? Or does he need to score another victory to catapult himself back to championship contention?
When is Charles Oliveira’s Next Fight?
Charles Oliveira was supposed to challenge reigning UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev for his title in the main event of UFC 294, but due to the nasty injury he sustained at the tail-end of his preparation in training camp, he was forced to withdraw and pull out of the fight.
Because of this injury, he might need some time to recover and recuperate before being cleared by his doctors and the UFC to compete again inside the Octagon. The former UFC lightweight champion was replaced by Alexander Volkanovski, who accepted the fight on 10 days’ notice. Oliveira will likely fight the winner of this title showdown.
