Charles do Bronx never stops. The Jiu-Jitsu brown belt made his UFC debut on August 1. After submitting Darren Elkins with an armbar in just forty-one seconds, he was called on to face TUF champion Efrain Escudero on September 15. Following his choke submission of Escudero, Charles was called on yet again. The Bronx’s Gold Team fighter will have his third fight in less than six months, against Jim Miller at UFC 124 in Montreal, Canada.
“The UFC really pushed for this fight; we received the offer through Macaco (Jorge Patino) and we accepted. We still need to sign the bout agreement, but if it’s up to us, it’s more than confirmed,” says trainer Ericson Cardozo.
On having so many fights over such a short period of time, Ericson is positive and brings up the days of Pride.
“I compare it to the days of Pride. The fighter would appear many times during a period of two months or less. I feel it’s good, because the fighter keeps in fight rhythm. I believe Fedor (Emelianenko) felt that a lot when he went to fight in the United States. Charles loves to train. After his fights he rests a few days and gets right back to training. He agreed to the fight right away, so we’ll go for it. I can only thank God for everything that is happening,” says Ericson in closing.
Jim Miller, Bronx’s next opponent, is coming off a five-fight win streak in the UFC, the last against Gleison Tibau.
