MOSCOW, July 21 – /strong>. Brazilian UFC fighter Charles Oliveira accused his next opponent Islam Makhachev of cowardice after refusing to fight in Brazil or on neutral territory.
Recall that on October 22, Oliveira will fight with the Russian for the title of UFC lightweight champion. The bout will headline UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

“Everyone knew that I wanted to fight McGregor in Brazil, but he didn’t answer. And Nurmagomedov and Makhachev said a lot of shit. Like, they will come to Brazil to beat me in front of my fans. And then they didn’t agree to it … How not agreed to fight on neutral territory. As a result, the champion will fight on the territory of his opponent for the third time. But, as I already showed in fights with Poirier and Gaethje, this is not a problem for me. It will be just me and him in the cage. I’m going to Abu “Dabi to shut up Khabib and Makhachev. I defeated all the top fighters in the division by submission or knockout and will not bring the fight to a decision,” Sherdog quotes the athlete.
