Charles Oliveira will not watch the UEFA champions league final between Liverpool and Real Madrid. Oliviera recently lost his lightweight championship after missing the weight at UFC 274. The fighter still won the fight and is looking forward to win it back anytime soo. The fight fans are also excited for that fight but it seems like they will have to wait a little.

Speaking of waiting, UFC will not take place this weekend as the promotion has no plans to collide with the live telecast of the UEFA Champions league final. The final will take place Stade de France in Paris, France.

Liverpool and Real Madrid will go against each other to win the reputed cup that every top club fought for the last one year. The viewership of champions league is massive as football is the most popular sport in the world. Even in the US, there are many fans of football who regularly watch the matches.

With this, it was a good decision from UFC to not to hold any event or else that would have affected their views.

Recently Oliveira made a tweet about asking his fans and followers about their plans on Saturday night.

The Brazilian suggested that there is no UFC this weekend so what are fans gonna do. He wrote:

“And there. At the UFC event this weekend…so what’s the plan for you?No UFC on Saturday…What to do on the weekend?.”

A user named @fabioprdo in response asked Oliveira why he is not in Paris watching the champions league final between Liverpool and Real Madrid.

” Why aren’t you in Paris to see the champions final?.”

The former lightweight champion replied back by saying he was at a rodeo in Cajamar, a municipality in São Paulo, Brazil to get an award. It was a big event and now he is going to sleep.

“I was at a rodeo in Cajamar. I was honored there. I’m going to sleep now,” wrote Oliveira.

Oliviera is Brazilian and football is like a festival there and everybody loves to play and watch the sport. Presumably, Oliveira was expected to follow the sport and champions league which is the epitome of football. But it seems like today the fighter will sleep rather than watch the finals.
