Islam Makhachev is finally getting his chance to become the champion and continue his teammate, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s legacy as the king of the lightweight division. However, things won’t be easy for the Dagestani team as they face the most-dangerous lightweight on the planet, Charles Oliveira in a main event fight for the lightweight title.

Oliveira vs Makhachev takes place at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi and Khabib has put out a tweet that is very “un-Khabib like”. The UFC Hall-of-Famer strongly believes that his teammate, Islam Makhachev won’t have an opponent during the night of the fight.

Charles, in his previous bout against Justin Gaethje for the lightweight title, lost his belt to the weigh-in scale. Khabib’s tweet seems to be a dig at the Brazilian many failed weigh-ins in the past.

Khabib’s recent tweet has truly rattled MMA Twitter. In his long career, we have never seen the Eagle go at another opponent or disrespect him. However, this sure does seem fishy that the Dagestani would tweet something like this. High chances Ali Abdelaziz is the man behind these bizarre tweets.

“I just think Charles Oliveira will not show up in Abu Dhabi and the UFC will replace Charles with Beneil Dariush. Regardless of who the opponent will be, Makhachev is on his way to becoming the best in the world,” read Khabib’s recent tweet. If you know Ali Abdelaziz and his antics on social media, this is exactly something that he would say.
