Charles Oliveira Net Worth 2021: How Much Is ‘Do Bronx’ Worth?
Charles Oliveira is the current king of the UFC Lightweight division, but how much is the 155-pound fighter worth?

The 155-pound king has faced off against some of the biggest names in the business on his way to the top of the division, earning him living wages over the past two years.
Oliveira’s fight against Chandler for the lightweight title would have earned her a paycheck of $ 875,000. The breakdown was as follows:
- $ 400,000 to show at the event

- Sponsorship bonus of $ 32,000

Charles Oliveira net worth
Oliveira is said to be worth around US $ 1.3 million, according to Net Worth Ranks. This number takes into consideration anything of value: cars, houses, real estate, money, etc.
Oliveira previously revealed that he did not receive a large chunk of his wages at the start of his career. Speaking in May 2021, ‘Do Bronx’ noted that a large chunk of his salary ends up going to training camp and being transferred to his home country of Brazil.
He said, “We don’t actually get $ 50,000, we end up with $ 15,000 or $ 20,000. Not to mention that I live in Brazil, so I have to transfer my battle winnings from the United States to Brazil and exchange the currency, which means paying more fees.
“Then I have to pay my trainers, supplements, it’s complicated. People think I’m rich, but I’m not. I’m still going to get rich, get a share of the pay-per-view, I’m now at a level where I can make a lot of money.
Oliveira looks set to make more massive gains as he sits atop the UFC’s lightweight division and potentially massive fights with Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier and Islam Makhachev.
