Charles Oliveira’s Head Coach Tests Positive For COVID-19


Streaking UFC lightweight contender, Charles ‘Do Bronx’ Oliveira will be without his head-coach, Diego Lima come fight night this weekend at UFC 256 — with the Chute Boxe tactician returning a positive COVID-19 test result.

Releasing a statement, Oliveira’s camp, Chute Boxe maintained that Lima will still be with his student in spirit on Saturday night, as the most prolific grappler in Octagon history is flanked by Jorge Patino and Gia Santos.

“We get sad, upset, but he (Diego Lima) is here with us at heart, in positive thinking, in spirit, and we know that everything will be all right. The lack of him here gives me the strength to show that we can win and that we did a wonderful job.“
