Charles Oliveira recently relayed that he had a neck injury prior to UFC Fight Night 74, but apparently another, very rare injury ended his bout with Charles Holloway.
If you missed last night’s fight, Oliveira waved off the scrap after failing to take Holloway down. The featherweight pointed at his neck and shoulder, and then told MMA Fighting.com this morning that he had inccured a neck injury prior to the bout.
Now, however, the UFC has informed MMA Junkie.com that Oliveira has been diagnosed with a micro-tear in his esophagus. The Brazilian is going to remain in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for a few more days and will receive more tests. No information regarding when “do Bronx” will be returning to the cage was available.
Here’s hoping Oliveira is back training and fighting soon.
