Charles Oliveira is expected to make his featherweight debut against newcomer Eric Wisely at UFC on Fox 2 on January 28 in Chicago, according to MMAjunkie.
Oliveira (14-2), who had been rumored to take on Robert Peralta, began his UFC career with “Submission of the Night” wins over Darren Elkins and Efrain Escudero, but is winless in his last three fight after earning “Fight of the Night” honors in a no contest against Nik Lentz between losses to Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone.
Wisely (19-6) is also a former lightweight who has won 5 of his last 6 fights, losing his lone Strikeforce bout to Pat Healy in August while earning wins over UFC veterans Hermes Franca and Matt Veach.
