Charles Oliveira is going with the blonde look ahead of UFC 256

The final UFC PPV of the years has a huge co-main event with Charles Oliveira taking on Tony Ferguson.

Both stars accepted this fight on short-notice but this should be a cracking fight. Oliveira is coming off the back of seven consecutive wins and last defeated Kevin Lee.

The 31-year-old is also sporting a new blonde look and it will be interesting to see if that helps him in this fight.

Oliveira is ranked #7 in the division while Ferguson is one of the best in the business. However, The American is coming off the back of a poor loss to Justin Gaethje and would want to correct that in this fight.

A lot of fighters who have turned blonde in recent months have ended up getting the win. Oliveira normally had black hair but that all seems to be out for now.

A tough fight to call?

Ferguson might have been dismantled in his last outing but El Cucuy is still one of the most dangerous stars in the UFC.

The American was on a 12-fight win streak before losing to Gaethje and could make a huge comeback in this.

Ferguson is also known to be a little different when it comes to training and was seen relaxing on a trampoline recently.

While opinions are split on who could get the win in this battle, former UFC interim Lightweight Champion Gaethje, has backed Ferguson to get the win.

Ferguson and Oliveira saved the UFC 256 card after several title fights went down the drain. All of them were due to injury and there were concerns that this wouldn’t have the drawing power needed for a PPV.

Oliveira vs Ferguson is a huge clash and hopefully it goes off without any issues. Many fights have been called off due to Covid-19 positive results, something that has happened in the last three cards too.
