Khabib Nurmagomedov has no doubt in his mind that he wants Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira to fight. Not the USA, not the UAE, Khabib prefers Islam to beat Oliveira in his home of Brazil.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has been cornering Islam Makhachev forever and the time has finally come where The Eagle can watch his childhood friend live his dream of becoming the world MMA champion. Islam is the favorite to take on Charles Oliveira for the vacant lightweight title. Oliveira was recently stripped from the title owing to his weigh-in mishap in his previous fight.

After Oliveira’s recent dominance in the lightweight division, every MMA fan now wants to see if the Brazilian can pass the test of Islam Makhachev. Charles and Islam are on 11 fights and 10 fights winning streak respectively and there is no better way to find out who the king of the 155-pound division is other than the two fight each other for the lightweight title.

Like many fans, Khabib Nurmagomedov wants to see “do Bronx” fight in his home of Brazil. While Islam has shown interest in fighting for the title in Abu Dhabi, his teammate Khabib would like to differ. “I’m very serious, if you ask me if they let me choose the location, I am gonna choose Brazil,” said Khabib talking to Brett Okamoto of ESPN MMA.
