Makhachev does not exclude that he and Oliveira will have several fights

Top lightweight UFC Islam Makhachev believes that there are not many real contenders for the championship belt in his division. In this regard, according to the Russian, his roads from Charles Oliveira may intersect several times.

“Can we have more than one fight with Oliveira? Yes. Now this is my division. There are Dariush and Gamrot here who know how to fight. Guys like Poirier or Gaethje or Chandler can be beaten again by Oliveira because they don't have wrestling or grappling. And then we can meet again," Makhachev said in an interview with ESPN.

Recall that on October 22 at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi, Oliveira and Makhachev will fight for the vacant lightweight belt.
