Well, this is certainly a way to make a name for yourself.
Jorge Oliveira has signed a contract with UFC and will replace the injured Pawel Pawlak this Saturday against Dhiego Lima at UFC Fight Night 56.
Oliveira is a member of Rio de Janeiro’s Renovacao Fight Team and enters the Octagon with a perfect 7-0 record in regional fights boasting five knockouts and two submissions.
