Athletistic / Boxing / MMA Former UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov sees Islam Makhachev as the favorite to fight Charles Oliveira for the vacant title.

“Islam will ride him like a horse. A lot of people often underestimate Islam. They think Oliveira is very good on the pitch.

Charles does not have great grappling abilities. How can you say you’re good on the court if you’ve made it to the UFC eight times? You gave up eight times,” Nurmagomedov said as quoted by LowKickMMA.

Recall that the fight between Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira will take place on October 22 at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi.
