Two-time UFC veteran Wendell Oliveira looks to get a second-straight win on the regional circuit when he takes on Gilmar Manaus in a welterweight bout at Immortal FC 5, which takes place at Max Rosenmann Sport and Leisure Center in Sao Jose dos Pinhais, Parana, Brazil.

Oliveira won 18 of 19 fights to get signed to the UFC, but he suffered two-straight knockout losses to Santiago Ponzinibbio and Darren Till and was cut. He then lost his first fight on the regional circuit to Antonio Trocoli, leading to a three-fight losing streak in the process, but bounced back with a knockout win over Paulo Henrique Teodoro de Oliveira, and another win over Manaus is necessary if he ever wants to make it back to UFC.

Manaus has fought many popular fighters out of Brazil during his career including the likes of former UFCers Iliarde Santos, Leandro Silva, Elias Silverio, Ronys Torres and Joao Zeferino but he’s been used more of a gatekeeper in his career. At 31, he’s finally put together a nice little two fight win streak and a win over Oliveira, a UFC veteran as well, might finally be what he needs to get called up to the big show.

With Oliveira owning 10 stoppage wins in his career and Manaus holding 19 finishes himself, there is a good chance someone gets a victory in this fight in devastating fashion and possibly gets a shot in the UFC on a Brazil card later this year.
