Charles Oliveira Predicts the Alex Pereira vs Jamahal Hill Fight

“‘Poatan’ is tough and hits hard,” Oliveira continued. “‘Poatan’ definitely is hungry for revenge too, and wants to avenge Glover’s loss (to Jamahal Hill). You have to be careful with that, but I’m sure ‘Poatan’ will knock him out.”

“Jamahal Hill said he will stand and trade with ‘Poatan’, that he will not try and take him down… He’s bluffing, for sure. Jamahal Hill has the takedowns, and the means to make it happen. That’s the strategy, to take him down. If he trades on the feet, he’s getting knocked out.”

Charles Oliveira himself actually has a fight booked for UFC 300, and he’s facing an exciting prospect named Arman Tsarukyan. Tsarukyan is entering the matchup riding a three-fight win streak, and most notably, both Oliveira and Tsarukyan have a victory over Beneil Dariush in their most recent fights. The matchup is surely going to decide who will be next up for title contention, and it is a battle both men would surely not like to lose.
