Amid speculation about his next career move, the former UFC lightweight champion, Charles of the Bronx, drew attention by intensifying his training and adopting the use of helmets. The sessions, held at the Chute Boxe gym in São Paulo, were marked by exchanges of blows with sparring and an emphasis on blows to the body.

The use of the helmet generated debate, especially after the cut on the eyebrow suffered by Charles during the sparring that preceded his rematch against Islam makhachev for the lightweight belt, in Abu Dhabi. The cut prevented him from competing in the fight and prevented him from getting another chance at the title.

Despite the record of two defeats in his last three fights, Charles of the Bronx remains one of the main names in the lightweight division. With a record of 34 wins, ten losses and one fight without result, the Brazilian still has no date or opponent defined for his return to the Octagon.


Speculation about the future of Charles of the Bronx revolve around two main possibilities: remain in the lightweight division and seek a new chance at the title, or move up a category to face Colby covington at welterweight.

The use of helmets in training and the intensification of physical preparation can be seen as signs that Charles of the Bronx is determined to resume his successful career in the UFC. The Brazilian is looking to recover from his recent defeats and return to being among the main candidates for the title in his category.
