Midnight Mania! Khabib responds ‘arrogance’ accusation, believes ‘pressure’ affecting Charles Oliveira

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

It’s no secret that Charles Oliveira didn’t want to struggle Islam Makhachev. The Dagestani wrestler has for sure earned the next shot, alternatively the Brazilian (form of) champion instead chased the money struggle vs. Conor McGregor. He moreover did not want to give Makhachev something of a space field benefit by way of fighting him in Abu Dhabi, alternatively lo and behold, Oliveira vs. Makhachev is booked as the primary fit at UFC 280 on Oct. 22 in Dubai.

Simply in recent times, a fiery Oliveira outlined his agree with {{that a}} perceived arrogance in Islam Makhachev and Khabib Nurmagomedov — along with the rest of their staff and keep an eye on — may well be their downfall. While speaking at an Eagle FC fit, Khabib denied any arrogance and outlined that pressure is the cause of Oliveira’s lashing out.

“I believe it’s silly to think we’re [Islam Makhachev and team] underestimating this struggle,” Khabib outlined (by the use of SportsKeeda). “If we say we want to finish the struggle early, I don’t see any arrogance in that… So what is not smug from his facet? That he wishes to conquer Islam Makhachev?… I don’t see to any extent further or much less arrogance proper right here. I simply think he’s starting to truly really feel the pressure of the struggle.”

In Khabib’s coverage, the trash keep up a correspondence has been somewhat delicate from his facet. At most, I will consider a promise that Makhachev would “adventure Charles Oliveira like a horse” en trail to an early finish. Next exactly crossing any major lines, correct? However, most likely the chip on Oliveira’s shoulder will pay off inside the struggle.

We’ll find out in October.
