Michael Chandler believes Charles Oliveira is going to be his toughest opponent

“I’ve been practicing my jiu-jitsu because Charles is very good, He may even be the scariest opponent I’ve ever faced in my entire career. Not only for his record number of submissions.”
“It’s no secret that, if you give him an arm a leg, or find yourself in a triangle, you’re either sleeping or tapping. I have a wrestling background, I can be very compact. I won’t leave my neck showing for him to grab a hold of.”
A win in this fight will present the opportunity to ‘Iron Mike’ to shut the mouths of doubters like Patricio Pitbull.
