Khabib Nurmagomedov had an interesting statement; Namely, he believes that Islam Makhachev would defeat Charles Oliveira in Brazil in front of his fans. Charles Oliveira responded quickly; “If they really want it, they need to chase the champion,” Oliveira told Ag.
Fight, as quoted by mmajunkie. “I chased the champion, right? Then I became the champion. I want to fight in December. Do you really want this? So let’s do something cool. Now I’m talking to you. Let’s fight in January in Brazil? Isn’t that what you really want? So sell it more.
But look at this, Khabib, you’ve already tried three premonitions about me and missed all three. “Look, I won’t say I’m going to submit or knock him out, but I’ll beat him. Listen to this: I will beat Islam Makhachev.
The division’s problem is called Charles Oliveira. That’s the division’s problem. It doesn’t matter what they say. If they really want it, I want it, too." “Look, forget about Conor McGregor now.
Forget it. In Brazil, Charles Oliveira against Islam Makhachev. Is this the fight you want? So we will have it. Charles Oliveira against Islam Makhachev in Brazil”.
Charles Oliveira and Khabib Nurmagomedov
Oliveira believes that he is the most dominant in the category, and that his opponents talk too much.
He is even ready to fight Khabib Nurmagomedov, who retired. It would certainly be an interesting fight, but nothing will come of it. Khabib is firm in his decision. The fight against Makhachev is more realistic and could happen in the near future.
“I’ll beat him (Makhachev). So who knows, maybe you (Nurmagomedov) come of retirement and come too?” Oliveira said. “Each one says what they want. I am the division’s problem. I have one of the best jiu-jitsu (games) in the division and in the UFC.
I think these guys are talking too much. They want to get in my mind, but that’s not possible”. He continued, “(Khabib) was champion, 29 wins in a row, and never said anything. He always sold the fight in a good way, really damn well, and today he is always talking a lot, and if it’s to talk, I’m gonna say it: I’ll beat Islam Makhachev and then challenge Khabib to come back from retirement.
It’s the fight everyone will want to see. Isn’t that what everyone will want to see? Everyone says Khabib is f*cking tough. I respect him a lot, but lately, he’s been talking too much”.
