Charles Oliveira Targets Islam Makhachev Following Dominant Win Over Beneil Dariush

In a thrilling showdown at UFC 289, Charles Oliveira showcased his extraordinary skills and defeated Beneil Dariush, with a dazzling 13-punch combination.

The Brazilian put an end to Dariush’s impressive four-fight winning streak in just the first round. Right from the start, it was clear that Oliveira was in top form.

The 33-year-old Brazilian dominated his opponent, launching a relentless assault that left Dariush reeling. As the round progressed, Oliveira showcased his ground-and-pound expertise, repeatedly pummeling Dariush into submission.

The Iranian fighter eventually curled up into a defensive position, prompting the referee to step in and stop the fight.

Overwhelmed with victory, Oliveira leaped onto the cage, basking in the glory of his triumph, before diving into the elated Vancouver crowd. 

Eager to continue his winning streak, Oliveira wasted no time in the post-fight interview, expressing his desire to face a past opponent in his upcoming fight.

“I don’t need to send a message. Last time, you saw 10 percent of me. Now, you saw 120 percent of me. The champion has a name, and its Charles Oliveira.

And you know what? Dana, I’m the next one (for the title). You want me to fight him [Islam Makhachev] in his house? I’ll go. I’m ready. Let’s do it,” Oliveira

 

Islam Makhachev, however, remained unfazed by Oliveira’s bravado and responded via Twitter, stating, “Congrats Charles. But still, there are levels to this game.”

Makhachev currently holds the lightweight champion title after defeating Alexander Volkanovski in February, setting the stage for an epic showdown.

With their history dating back to UFC 280 in 2022, where Makhachev secured victory over Oliveira with an arm-triangle choke, fans eagerly anticipate a rematch between the two fierce competitors.
