MMA is an aggressive sport and many fighters experience serious injuries. All fighters protect their teeth, yet it is not surprising when they lose a tooth or two. In Oliveira’s case, it is not known if he has had a broken tooth during or immediately after a fight. However, his perfect pearly whites have surely confused people.

Many people feel that the Brazilian fighter’s teeth are a little too big and too white to be real. They can’t help but wonder about his perfectly aligned teeth and smile.

However, as older pictures of the fighter show slightly imperfect and more real-looking teeth, it is possible that ‘Do Bronx’ may have gotten some dental procedures done.

As Oliveira has not commented or spoken about the same, we cannot say if he has fake teeth or has undergone any procedure.

Many fighters have tooth and jaw issues because of sustaining injuries. Some fighters who have lost a tooth during fights are Devin Clark and Anthony Smith. Hence, it would not be surprising if Oliveria too had to get veneers or other alignment procedures done.

What’s next for Charles Oliveira?

Being the champion, Oliveira will fight only the best. Hence, anyone he faces in the octagon will be a deserving fighter; someone with the potential to dethrone him and takeover. One such name is Dustin Poirier. Oliveira is set to face Poirier at UFC 269. The event takes place on December 11 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Both are experienced and highly skilled fighters. Hence, a banger fight between both of them is expected. This is one fight that UFC and MMA fans cannot afford to miss.

Both Oliveira and Poirier are evenly matched. Their sheer power and talent are expected to cause a lot of destruction. This is exactly what makes the fight exciting to watch.
