Oliveira: "I'm coming back for the belt"
Former UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira refused to trash talk before a rematch with the current title holder Islam Makhacheva, but this does not prevent him from clearly and clearly declaring his intention to climb to the top again.
“You know, that’s where the champion is! Islam Makhachev is in command now, but I’m coming back for the belt,” Oliveira said in an interview with James Lynch.
Let us remind you that the rematch between Makhachev and Oliveira will headline the UFC 294 tournament, which will take place on October 21 in Abu Dhabi (UAE). The first fight of these fighters took place a year earlier in the same place and ended with the victory of the Dagestani by chokehold.
