    It seems Charles Oliveira’s team will get their wish.

    A few days after the Brazilian’s manager expressed his desire for ‘Do Bronx’ to headline the upcoming UFC Brasilia card either against Justin Gaethje or Kevin Lee, Combate reported that, in fact, the ‘Motown Phenom’ will take on the Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert at the card’s main event.

    Currently on a six-fight winning streak, with all victories coming by way of knockout or submission, Charles Oliveira (28-8-1 NC) defeated notable names such as Clay Guida, Jim Miller, and David Teymur in his past outings and will now finally get the chance to take on a top-10 opponent.

    I must be seeing things - Oliveira is actually going to fight a ranked opponent? I thought he'd learned his lesson. Why not just fight Nik Lentz for the 4th time?

    Well Do Bronx and his legion of fans got what they asked for, another step up in competition. When he's laying there getting smashed by Kevin Lee I hope those fans feel bad about it. I love the guy and hope he wins but that is one of the worst matchups for him, even Paul Felder dominated him on the ground.

    Good fight. TriStar Lee takes it, but it'll be a tough one.
