In other words, as "Do Bronx" tells the TATAME, UFC means he now has the good life-good money, good fights (Jim Miller), and good food for his girlfriend. Well, sort of. "Now that I’m on UFC, I can focus exclusively on my trainings, in my future. Before I didn’t have enough money to buy stuff. I have a girlfriend, Thalita, and sometimes I wanted to take her out for a nice meal and I couldn’t afford it. Now I can go out with her and it what I want… So it’s much better ... Literally a dream. Now, I’m not great. But I can buy my stuff. Well, I bought a new closet. My house is humble, who knows me I almost live on a slum. Now, thanks God, if my girlfriend says: 'Baby, I want to eat a cheeseburger with salad today', I can afford it. If my friend comes to ask me: 'Charles, I’m feeling like eating something but I can’t afford it', I go there and help him. I’m a humble guy, I like to help my friends. Thanks God I’m living my dream, a new life."

Hats off to Miller for even taking this fight. I'd have turned it down in a second.

Miller is 7-1 in the UFC and winner of 5 straight. His only loss is to a guy fighting for the title in his next outing. He should be in a #1 contender match or possibly getting the next shot after Maynard. Not taking on an up and coming prospect with only 1 UFC win.

Oliveira is a huge threat and a Miller win wouldn't put him any closer to the title than he already is. A loss would put him right back where he started though and given the matchup its hard to pick against Oliveira.

But a good cheeseburger still goes for $9-10.

I'm always so happy to see these guys who come from nothing make it on this level. It's a better life for everyone involved as long as they continue to do the right things. Sky's the limit for this kid if he can string it all together.

Yeah I'm definitely with you Grappler. I'm pretty sure I saw him moving like crazy on the feet and engaging.

I don't think he was referring to the fight itself, but rather at the beginning/end of the rounds. I'm pretty sure at the beginning of the 2nd and 3rd rather than touching gloves he went to hug Efrain, and I think he hugged Efrain at the end of round one. I know there were 3 hugs during the fight because I said something about it as well. I didn't think much of the first one, but the 2nd and 3rd I was like seriously?

EDIT: Now that I'm thinking about it I think even the ref said something in the 3rd.

Sorry, I wasn't reading it literally. Usually when I read about people hugging, they're usually referring to inactivity, or lay and pray.
