Charles Oliveira has just announced that he’s opening an official OnlyFans account, although it’s not for the same reason that most people expect when they hear the site’s name. Although OnlyFans is known more for adult services, it’s actually just a subscription site for anyone who’s willing to offer a service for their followers. Oliveira explained that he’s joined the site in order to share more information about his workouts and routines with his subscribers.
He’s far from the first top athlete to open an account on the popular subscription service too, as Craig Jones also joined a while ago in order to provide a new service to his fans. It’s a great idea for any athlete really, and not just because it opens up another potential revenue stream. It also allows athletes to engage with their fans on an entirely new level, as they can have much more personalized relationship with the people who support them throughout their careers.
As time goes on, it’s quite likely that fans see more and more high-level grapplers and UFC fighters join services like OnlyFans. It’s particularly likely for grapplers, who compete in sports with significantly less money available for those who compete at the highest levels. While a truly exceptional competitor like Gordon Ryan can command a seven-figure contract, the vast majority of world-class grapplers don’t earn the same kind of income that one might expect of a professional athlete.
The original announcement was made in Portuguese, which is Oliveira’s native language, and the translation of it can be found below:
“Now it’s official, I’m part of the OnlyFans. But calm down, it’s not this content you’re imagining. There i will be posting exclusive stuff for subscribers. More about my routine, my workouts, my family and even my leisure moments. If you haven’t registered yet, go ahead and register now.”
