The excellent Brazilian fighter from UFC, Charles Oliveira, you are facing the best opportunity of your life. The aforementioned will have the chance to be crowned champion of the Light weight in the most important entity in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. This will be so, as long as it liquidates Michael chandler inside the octagon. Of course, it will not be easy, knowing that the former Bellator champion will be in front.
The division of Light weight will have a new champion, after the official retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov days ago. Last week, the Dagestani, along with Dana White, released the news that he will step aside and that his belt will be vacant. Therefore, the new leader of the category will be crowned when Michael chandler collide with Charles Oliveira. This, initially, would be at UFC 262 on May 15.
There is a lot of illusion
Understanding the above, Oliveira He began by saying the following about it: “If he knocks me down, he will do me a favor. I think he will try to keep the fight going and repeat what he did with Dan Hooker. But while he has good shots, I have more combinations. Besides, I won’t run away like Hooker did. On the contrary, for each one of their attempts I will have a more forceful answer ».
“Of course, Chandler deserves credit for that victory on his debut. But if Hooker weren’t so preoccupied with talking nonsense I’m sure he could have done better. I have improved my fight a lot. If you watch my last fights, I took down all my opponents. And of course I’ll focus on that against Chandler. Although if he comes against me, I will catch him with a counterattack, “said the Brazilian.
Before the press, Diego Lima, manager of Charles OliveiraHe summed up: “Honestly, I think he deserves to go straight for the belt. He’s coming off eight wins in a row, he beat Kevin Lee superbly and then he dominated Ferguson on all sides, and Ferguson is one of the best in the division, he won 12 in a row before losing a title fight, so I think Charles he’s ready and credible enough to fight for the belt. With all due respect, Khabib ran over Gaethje. That must count, and a lot.
