According to Jacob “Stitch” Duran, the man you normally see fixing up fighters prior to their bouts, Charles Oliveira suffered a knee injury just minutes before facing Cub Swanson at UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort. Swanson earned a first round victory over Oliveira.
“I do know that in preparation for going out there, warming up, he twisted his knee,” said Duran, while appearing on MMAjunkie.com Radio.
Oliveira’s name was on the injury report. He was given an indefinite suspension, but the exact reason was not listed.
