Charles Oliveira bites back at Arman Tsarukyan after he branded Brazilian predictable and ‘nothing special’ ahead of UFC 300 lightweight showdown

Charles Oliveira has accused his UFC 300 opponent Arman Tsarukyan of ‘talking bulls***’ about him.

Tsarukyan claims he will finish the Brazilian former lightweight champion and accused him of being a one dimensional fighter.

The pair will go toe-to-toe at the historic event in Las Vegas this weekend and Tsarukyan said: ‘Charles is good at one thing – taking his opponent’s back and choking him out from that position.

‘But overall he’s nothing special. Yes, he has some tricks when pulling guard, but nothing extraordinary.’

Oliveira was asked about those dismissive comments and said his rival was talking ‘a bunch of s***’.

‘If I only have that, and I have 16 submissions on my [UFC] record, I guess they were all from the back, right?’ Oliveira told MMA Fighting.

‘And I guess the knockouts I have weren’t knockouts, they were submissions. It’s too much bulls*** they talk.

‘It was said that I’m a quitter, but I was knocked down, walked forward and knocked them out. I also heard I’m not hungry, that I don’t want it anymore. He doesn’t know how bad I want to become champion again.

‘You have to chill before you say anything because you’re not talking about anyone, I’m the No. 1 in this division.

‘I have the record for most submissions, most bonuses. If you look at my history, you’ll see you’re talking c**p.’

Oliveira is coming off a win over Beneil Dariush, having bounced back from his comprehensive defeat by Islam Makhachev.

Tsarukyan has only lost one of his last nine and also put Dariush away in his most recent fight, setting the stage perfectly for the second fight on the main card at T-Mobile Arena.

Both men will feel they could be next in line for a title shot with a victory, though Dustin Poirier is also in the hunt, while Justin Gaethje will feel a statement win over Max Holloway should cement his place at the top of the queue.
