Charles Oliveira Meets Robert Peralta at Featherweight at UFC on FX

UFC Live on Versus 2: Charles OliveiraFormer lightweight prospect Charles Oliveira will look to snap a two-fight losing streak when he drops to 145-pounds to meet Robert Peralta in a featherweight bout at the first UFC on FX event on January 20th in Nashville, Tennessee, according to TheCageDoor.

Oliveira (14-2) began his UFC career with “Submission of the Night” wins over Darren Elkins and Efrain Escudero, but is winless in his last three fight after earning “Fight of the Night” honors in a no contest against Nik Lentz between losses to Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone.

Peralta (16-3) is just days removed from his TKO of Mackens Semerzier this past Saturday at UFC on Fox that is being appealed after replays showed an accidental headbutt set up the finish. Even if the win is overturned to a no contest, Peralta and Semerzier apparently won’t be meeting again in their next fights.

UFC on FX also includes Pat Barry vs. Christian Morecraft and Duane “Bang” Ludwig vs. Josh Neer and takes place eight days before the second UFC on Fox event is planned for Jan. 28 in Chicago, which is followed by UFC 137 with welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz on Feb. 4.
