Do Bronx - Charles Oliveira Nickname
Charles Oliveira was given the name 'Do Bronx' when he first stepped into the Macao Gold Team. Favelas are sometimes referred to as 'bronx' in Portuguese. Thus, Charles 'Do Bronx' translates to Charles 'of the bronx' or Charles 'of the favela'.
Oliveira has been a part of the UFC roster for a decade now, starting in the promotion as a young prospect. 'Do Bronx' has made the necessary adjustments and silently worked hard over the years to achieve the enormous stardom and dominance inside the octagon that he commands today.
Charles Oliveira could be the next UFC champion pursuing double gold.
Fresh off a thrilling third-round submission over Dustin Poirier in his first defense of the lightweight belt at UFC 269, “do Bronx” told MMA Fighting’s Portuguese-language podcast Trocação Franca he agrees with his coach Diego Lima that chasing more titles is definitely doable.
Lima recently told Trocação Franca that it would be “viable” to return to 145 pounds to challenge Alexander Volkanoski or move up to 170 pounds and face reigning welterweight king Kamaru Usman. Oliveira has one preference, but wouldn’t turn down the other.
