Oliveira: "For every one of Hooker's attempts, I'll have an even stronger answer."

Charles Oliveira is bursting with confidence and is confident he has everything he needs to become the new UFC lightweight champion. Dana White and the UFC finally came to terms with the fact that Khabib Nurmagomedov will no longer be watched in their cage a few days ago, and shortly after that, they confirmed that we will see Brazilian Oliveira and Michael Chandler in the title match.

"If he knocks me down, he'll do me a favor, but I believe he'll mostly try to keep the fight on his feet and repeat what he managed to do against Dan Hooker." "But if he only has one good shot, I certainly have a lot more combinations," said Oliveira for Sherdog.com and added: "I'm certainly not going to run away from him like Hooker.

On the contrary, for every one of his attempts, I'll have an even stronger answer." "Of course Chandler deserves respect for winning in his debut, but that Hooker wasn't so worried about talking shit about me in fight week, I'm sure would have a better performance.

" 'Do Bronx' also points out that he has made great progress in wrestling and that this is part of the game to which he will dedicate himself to fighting Chandler. But while many expect the new celebration could come with a ‘submission’, Charles announces the victory by knockout.

“He has very strong entrances and that’s where I’ll catch him with a counter,” Oliveira predicts.

McGregor or Poirier

If he becomes Khabib’s 262 successors at UFC on May 15, the Brazilian could have a more successful one from the still unofficial match between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier for his next opponent.

Oliveira had words of praise for Poirier and believes that Poirier is the one who has a better chance in the match with McGregor and that he would probably take the victory. Still, he seems to be more focused on himself and his progress than on other matches, which is really good for him.

"Conor is really dangerous in the first two rounds, but I think Poirier with more experience and activity will win in their third fight as well. But my focus now is exclusively on Chandler. In this category, every fight is a different war," Oliveira concluded. Oliveira is full of confidence and it will be interesting to follow his career, which is already successful for now.
