Featherweight Charles Oliveira has inked a new deal with the UFC ahead of his July fight. The new contract calls for an additional four fights.
Since Oliveira dropped to featherweight, he’s 2-1. After taking a pair of submission wins Oliveira lost a decision to Cub Swanson in September. The 23-year-old stands at 4-3-1 NC for the UFC. He has taken three bonuses for the promotion with two for Submission of the Night and one for Fight of the Night.
Oliveira returns against former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar at UFC 162. The last three fights for Edgar have him on the losing end.
UFC 162 will be on July 6. It comes from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
