Before his last appearance on the show, he was a Bellator regular, having three fights for the promotion. A finisher, it’s no wonder the UFC have invited him to compete twice now. Of his eight pro wins, only one has seen the judges.
A top-class striker, he has finished six of his win via KO/TKO and holds a lone submission victory. He is looking to bring his finishing form to DWCS and earn a contract. If he can emulate his previous performances, you’ll see Chris Duncan in the UFC lightweight division very soon.
Looking to throw a spanner into the works and upset Chris Duncan’s UFC Hopes. Charlie is no easy fight. 6-1 as a professional, his last loss came back in 2019 in his second pro fight. Since that loss, he has gone 5-0. Gaining his shot at a contract.
Also, a striker, his last three wins have all come by way of KO/TKO. Holding four overall with two decisions. Slightly younger at 27, the American fighter will have the home advantage when competing. Training at Longo and Weidman MMA. Charlie has some of the best sports minds around him.
