UFC 262 Testing, Predictions, Betting Trends Against Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler
Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will compete on Saturday for newly retired Khabib Nurmagomedov at the UFC 262 main event to win the UFC Lightweight title he recently left at the Toyota Center in Houston.
Oliveira and Chandler have had completely different journeys to get to this point. Oliveira is one of the longest-running UFC fighters in a decade-long title, Chandler has only been in the UFC for eight months, but former Bellator champion is in first place. his legacy.
Oliveira set the UFC mark (14) at the Performance of the Night Awards (10) and with Donald Cerrone (16) scored the highest score in UFC history. But it wasn’t until 2018 that Oliveira started a huge eight-win streak in a row, except for everyone who finished within the distance.
Oliveira will face one of the greatest fighters in Bellator’s history as three-time champion Michael Chandler adds UFC hardware to his resume. The 35-year-old made his UFC debut in January with a tremendous stop on Dan Hooker’s first return. That victory gave him a chance to win the UFC title and Chandler is aware that he will not get another shot in the highly talented division.

Some fighters guess later than others and Charles Oliveira falls for that. After a relatively up-and-down streak with the UFC for the first seven years, winning 10-8 with a No Contest contest, Oliveira’s game merged in such a way that Brazil won eight straight victories in the main, five innings and two playoffs along the way. Rather than being a presentation specialist, Oliveira has rounded out her striking to become a threat anywhere in the Octagon. And once invented by a fighter like Oliveira, it’s very hard to stop them.
Some may think that Chandler’s early shot at the UFC gold is his only fight in the organization. But it makes sense for the UFC to need new faces in the history and title image of three-time Bellator champion. Since losing to Patricio Pitbull and cutting the night off against Brett Primus, Chandler has been one of the best light heavyweights in the world in the last half decade. He is a pressure fighter with heavy hands and star fighting.
The first thing you should delete is that the judges will be involved in the outcome. Chandler and Oliveira have put together 66 fights and only 11 of them have gone on to decide. Considering the corresponding fighting styles, it is very difficult for this to go on for a full 25 minutes.
But how will it end? There are two options: by Chandler elimination (+200) or by Oliveira submission (+220). Chandler has never been featured in an MMA career while Oliveira has been eliminated four times. However, a fighter like Chandler is the one who plays right in the hands of Oliveira. Chandler has never fought an opponent close to Oliveira’s level in the jiujitsu department. All it takes is a failed attempt by Chandler to find himself in a guillotine or a string of presentation attempts. He needs to avoid Chandler’s power and that’s a big job. Considering that Oliveira likes to fight opponents who put pressure on her, as she did against Tony Ferguson, we like the chances she has of finishing the job.
