Former UMaine football player makes successful transition to MMA

BANGOR, Maine — When Carlton Charles visited football practice at the University of Maine last Friday, his presence was a mystery to some.

Not that veteran players and coaches didn’t know the former Black Bear fullback. They just didn’t know it was him at first.

“A lot of the guys didn’t even recognize me because I’m 60 pounds lighter than when I played,” Charles said.

That’s understandable, because while the Windham native arrived on the Orono campus in 2010 as a 268-pound defensive tackle before ultimately finding his place within the program as a 240-pound blocking, Charles was at a fit 185 pounds last weekend as he made his mixed martial arts debut.

Carlton Charles receives support from UMaine in MMA debut

BANGOR - When Carlton Charles stepped into the octagon for the first time at NEF 30 in Bangor this past weekend, he brought a piece of apparel to the cage to remember his past: a Maine Black Bears hat.

Charles after all was a fullback with the University of Maine football team, and graduated in 2014. Back then, he looked more like a grid iron warrior, rather than a cage fighter.
