Contender for the vacant UFC lightweight title, Michael Chandler, knows exactly what will happen when he hits the octagon against Charles Oliveira.
“I walk into a crowded arena in Houston, Texas, and 19,000 Americans are chanting my name, cheering for me,” Chandler told MMAFighting. “I go out and find myself right in front of Charles Oliveira, who in the very first exchange, at the first pressure I put on, will begin to doubt himself. He will immediately begin to react sharply and worry about his legs. I will arrange a hunt for his head, his legs, for his whole body, and the very first blow that hits the target will completely nullify him. “
“He will wake up from the bright light that will come from me, standing at the top of the cage with a raised hand and UFC gold at my waist. This is how it will be. I predict that everything will happen in the first round. Then I’ll throw out a phenomenal 2021 ending and wear this baby for the next few years. “
The lightweight title fight between Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira will headline UFC 262 in Houston on May 15
