Michael Chandlerwho will face the Charles Oliveira for the UFC lightweight belt, he is confident that he will be able to impose his fighting style on his rival and knock him out in the first round of the match.
Just before the upcoming championship match, which will take place on May 15 at UFC 262, Michael Chandler in an interview for MMA Fighting presented a visualization of the course of the championship.
Right at the beginning, as soon as I hit him in the face, he will realize what is happening and feel the pressure. He will start to worry about his legs and I will attack his head, then his legs and torso. I’ll mix it all up and then hit him so that the fight is over. When he wakes up in the glow of the lights, I will stand over him with my hands raised in victory and UFC gold on my hips.
Chandler also said how quickly he will defeat Oliveira.
I expect to finish in the first round.
Chandler is a former Bellator MMA lightweight champion who has decided to try his hand at the UFC octagon. “Iron” made his debut in the cage of the largest MMA organization in the world, when at UFC 257 he knocked out the division’s leading player, Dan Hooker, in the first round.
Oliveira has a great streak of 8 wins in a row. The Brazilian, who loves to finish his fights ahead of time, has won victories from, among others, Kevin Lee or Tony Ferguson. It was with “El Cucuy” that he won at UFC 256 and proved that he belongs to the top of the division. As many as 19 of the 30 victories in his career, the Brazilian won by surrendering his rivals.
