Charles Oliveira has fired again at former UFC middleweight title challenger Chael Sonnen after the American commented on his conduct. The UFC lately booked ‘Do Bronx’ for a title battle in opposition to Michael Chandler, which can outline the brand new light-weight champion following Khabib Nurmagomedov’s official retirement.
Though Sonnen agrees that the Brazilian deserves to battle for the 155 lb gold, ‘The American Gangster’ had some harsh criticism saved for Charles Oliveira’s lack of trash-talking.
Talking with the Brazilian YouTube channel PVT, Oliveira went in opposition to Sonnen’s evaluation. ‘Do Bronx’ claimed he doesn’t want to advertise himself in that approach to show his worth.
“The query right here is: did [Chael Sonnen] ever change into a UFC champion? He was by no means a UFC champion. He’s all discuss. That is the one factor he did again then. Did he become profitable? Possibly he earned some cash. However, in actuality, every considered one of us sells fights in another way,” Charles Oliveira stated (translation by Sportskeeda).
“Do you wish to see a spectacle? Put me contained in the cage and shut it. I’ll lose the battle, however will probably be a present. It will likely be a struggle. The identical factor if I win. These guys who’re saying that I am doing all improper, that I do not trash discuss sufficient, I simply ignore them. It would not change something for me,” he concluded.
With a profitable streak of eight matches, Charles Oliveira seems like some of the harmful fighters at 155 lb. He hopes to substantiate that at UFC 262 on Could 15.
What does Charles Oliveira consider trash-talkers like Conor McGregor?
Identified for his phrases outdoors of the octagon, as a lot as his strikes inside it, Conor McGregor is without doubt one of the most well-known trash-talkers in UFC historical past.
The Irishman arguably had some opponents defeated mentally even earlier than coming into the cage in opposition to them. Though Charles Oliveira acknowledges that, he doesn’t assume it fits his model.
“Conor is an outstanding trash talker. A UFC champion, nicely performed. He made some huge cash, nicely performed. Congratulations. However I wish to be champion behaving the identical method I at all times did. [Being] humble, down-to-earth, respectful, no trash discuss,” Charles Oliveira stated.
As for the upcoming trilogy battle between McGregor and Dustin Poirier, ‘Do Bronx’ most well-liked to keep up his unique stance, standing with Poirier as the favourite.
“I believe Dustin will win once more due to his mindset proper now. However Conor could be very harmful within the first two rounds,” Charles Oliveira stated.
