Charles Oliveira vs. Jonathan Brookins Set for UFC on Fuel TV


The UFC announced on Monday that a featherweight bout between Charles Oliveira and Jonathan Brookins has been verbally agreed to for The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale.

Charles Oliveira (15-2, 1 NC) cut to the featherweight division after going on a run that saw him lose two quick stoppages to Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone, and have a submission win over Nik Lentz converted to a no contest due to an illegal knee. In his 145lbs debut, which came at UFC on Fox 2 in January, Oliveira quickly submitted Eric Wisely with a calf slicer. That victory earned the 22-year-old Brazilian his third Submission of the Night bonus.

Jonathan Brookins (13-4) defeated Michael Johnson in a lightweight bout in 2010 to become the twelfth winner of The Ultimate Fighter. From there, Brookins dropped to featherweight and has gone 1-1. He recently rebounded from a unanimous decision loss to Erik Koch by knocking out Vagner Rocha at UFC On Fuel TV 1 in February.

The Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale is scheduled to take place on June 1 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be headlined by welterweight contenders Jake Ellenberger and Martin Kampmann.
