After an intense stare-down with Islam Makhachev at Friday’s ceremonial weigh-ins, Charles Oliveira was revved up for their upcoming lightweight title battle at UFC 280 and threatened to ‘kill this guy.’
After his face-off with Makhachev, Oliveira stated. “I will kill this guy,”
Makhachev showed signs of enthusiasm and excitement for Saturday’s fight, saying the following “I see big support, big support from [the crowd]. And tomorrow night is gonna be crazy. All people who support me, thank you so much.”
It is predicted that Makhachev would leave Etihad Arena on Saturday night with the UFC lightweight belt around his waist, despite Oliveira’s eleven-fight winning streak.
