By Tristen Critchfield Feb 4, 2019


Charles Oliveira endured multiple eye pokes during his bout with David Teymur at UFC Fight Night 144, and those fouls could potentially sideline “Do Bronx” for a lengthy amount of time.

Oliveira, who defeated Teymur via second-round submission, is facing a potential 180-day medical suspension unless an ophthalmologist clears his eyes. At a minimum, he is suspended 30 days with 21 days of no contact. Teymur is also suspended 180 days pending ophthalmologist clearance along with a 30-day suspension with 21 days of no contact.
