Michael Chandler Predicts Knockout Win Over Charles Oliveira At UFC 262
Michael Chandler believes he’ll walk out of the Toyota Center with the UFC Lightweight Title.
Chandler and Oliveira will collide in the main event of UFC 262. The action will take place in Houston, Texas. The vacant UFC Lightweight Championship will be on the line. The gold was relinquished by Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has retired from pro MMA competition.
During an interview with MMAFighting.com, Chandler said he sees a knockout victory over Oliveira to conclude UFC 262.
“I walk out into a packed arena in Houston, Texas, 19,000 red, white and blue-blooded Americans chanting my name, rooting for me. I go out there and I get in Charles Oliveira’s face immediately and he will realize and feel from the first exchange, from the pressure I put on him, he will immediately start to second guess himself. He will immediately start to overreact. He will immediately start to worry about his legs. I’ll go to his head. I’m going to go to his legs. I’m going to go to his body. I’m going to mix it up. A punch is going to land, he’s going to get his clock cleaned.
“He’s going to wake up to the bright lights of me standing on top the cage about to get my hand raised and UFC gold around my waist. That’s how it’s going to go. I predict it’s going to be in the first round. Then I predict a phenomenal end to 2021 and then we’re going to carry this baby on for a couple of years.”
