Phoenix Arizona hosted UFC 274 today, which is sure to go down in history for many reasons. Two of which are the deprivation of Charles Oliveira of the championship title for overweight ( the reason for this could be a diversion of his opponent's camp ), and the Brazilian's bright victory over Justin Gaethje , which confused all the cards of Ali Abdelaziz , Khabib Nurmagmoedov and Islam Makhachev . Now the Aziz chicks do not have a bribe competitor who is ready to sell a victory for good money and make Makhachev a champion, like Nurmagomedov himself once was, and instead of him, perhaps the best lightweight in the history of the UFC, a tough and strong-willed grappler, capable of multiplying by zero tsumadin fight.
But there is still room to retreat, and Makhachev can return to the fight with his accomplice Beneil Dariush , although then one of them will have to lose, and this is not included in Khabibov's plans. You can again skillfully fight with the "bag" - fortunately Islam developed a similar skill throughout his career. Or you can move the fight with Oliveira to Abu Dhabi, arrange unbearable conditions for victory with psychological pressure, poisoning, the ability to chemicalize the “brothers” and God knows what else, and weigh Islam on the “Aladdin scales”, with the help of the power of genies, making light heavyweights lightweight.
Therefore, immediately after the victory of Charles, Makhachev's patron turned to the UFC chief:
“Why should Islam have a Candidates match if there is no champion in the division?”
“You have no other choice but to fight Oliveira vs. Islam in Abu Dhabi on 22 October. Perfect date, perfect place, perfect opponents with perfect winstreaks 10 vs 11,” Nurmagomedov tweeted.
Makhachev immediately supported him on command:
"Congratulations Charles and see you in Abu Dhabi for the vacant title."
Of course, all this looks like a bluff, but in any case, the undercover fuss of this company becomes much more interesting and unpredictable. Valetudo.ru will keep a close eye on wool movements and be the first to tell you about everything.
