Charles Oliveira is a professional mixed martial artist and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner who competes in the lightweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

His most notable wins include those over Clay Guida at UFC 225 (2018), Jim Miller at UFN 135: Shevchenko vs Carmouche 2 (2019), Kevin Lee at UFN 164: Blaydes vs Dos Santos (2020) ,and two wins over Anthony Pettis – firstly during TUF 26 Finale: Eubanks vs Modafferi (2017) and secondly during UFN 95: Blachowicz vs Jacare 2(2020).
