Charles Oliveira popularly known as ‘Do Bronx’ was born on the 17th of October in 1989. Having suffered from bone rheumatism at a very young age, his sporting career looked to be in dire straits. He had initially wanted to become a footballer.

Through grit, determination and the support of his family, he overcame the ailment and is now one of the best lightweights in the world.

He made his MMA debut in March 2008, and quickly rose through the ranks to grab the UFC’s attention. He has been a part of the UFC since 2010.
