The former Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko commented on the fight announced by UFC between Russian Islam Makhachev and Brazilian Charles Oliveira.
According to Shlemenko, Russian has high chances for success and Oliveira will hardly be able to convince him. Nevertheless, we should not forget that the Brazilian is one of the strongest in the lightweight division.
"For Islam Makhachev this will be the fight of his life, because he's been going for it for so long. And this is his main chance to prove that he is the top dog in this weight," the commentator explained.
We must recall that light welterweight title fight between Makhachev and Oliveira will take place on October 22 at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi.
