[Charles Oliveira talks about Khabib Nurmagomedov] I can’t say anything about Khabib, he’s been defeating everybody, He beat all the top guys. But they’re all strikers, none of them were jiu-jitsu guys who were unafraid of being taken down. I’m the answer to his game, I’m the right guy to fight Khabib, I think that, if I win two more fights, who knows, I might have this opportunity to fight him. It would be great since I have my jiu-jitsu and I’m not afraid of being taken down

[Charles Oliveira Is Focused On Climbing To The Top] Everything happened the way it should have happened. I lost to some big names, former champions and fighters that became champions after, but everything that happened was part of my journey. I had my ups and downs. I accepted some fights that now I don’t think I should have, but I see myself in the best moment of my career right now and I’m ready for everything

[I accepted some fights that now I don’t think I should have, but I see myself in the best moment of my career right now and I’m ready for everything] My daughter was born two years ago and that changed my life completely. Also, after my loss to Paul Felder, my team and I sat down and said, ‘We need to change a few things.’ We figured out where I could improve, fixed things and that’s when everything clicked

[the fact that he’s etched his name in the UFC record books clearly means something to the streaking Brazilian finisher] [The ups and downs earlier in my career] made me learn a lot, made me evolve and that’s why today I’m the UFC fighter with the most submission finishes ever. [Holding that record] makes me really proud. I came from a poor community and now I have the most submission finishes in the UFC. I broke Royce’s record and have added to it two more times. I have a lot of good things going on in my life and I’m really proud of everything that has happened

I wanted to fight and I was ready to fight anybody the UFC offered me. I would have accepted any name the UFC offered me.

[offering his assessment of Gordon and how he sees the fight playing out] He’s a tough guy. He moves forward, has some good takedowns, and takes a lot of punches. It’s going to be a big war on Saturday, but I’m going to do what I always do: show that I’m a better fighter standing up and put on a great show again for the Sao Paulo crowd. I want to beat this guy on Saturday and hopefully it won’t last long so I can get another fight this year because next year, I want to focus on the belt

[Charles Oliveira is now on 6 fight win streak, and he has the second most finishes in UFC history(15) following the 16 finishes of Donald Cerrone] I don’t care who it is, I don’t care what name he has if they come in here it’s going to be a bad night

[Charles Oliveira continues to engrave his name deeper into the history of UFC. In his latest stint, Charles went up against Kevin Lee and extended his win-streak] I would fight McGregor in any weight, no problem. It would be a good fight, I’d really like to fight him. It could be at 155 or 170, it doesn’t matter

[After defeating Kevin Lee, Oliveira stated that he is ready to fight for the UFC Lightweight Championship] I’m ready to fight for it now. There’s not much I can say, I don’t leave it in the hands of the judges. I knock out or I submit. It’s my time. It’s a new history, it’s a new Charles

[Charles Oliveira Believes Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs. Tony Ferguson Is Cursed] I think this Khabib fight with Tony Ferguson will never happen. Something always happens, someone gets hurt. This time was the coronavirus

[Oliveira believes that will likely be the case as he feels Ferguson has the edge over Gaethje] Tony Ferguson is in a very good moment in his life, is beating everyone, and [he] has a unique style. I think it would be a tough fight for Justin Gaethje now, because Tony Ferguson was training to fight the champion [and had] an opportunity to become the world champion. So he was definitely training like never before, and Justin Gaethje wasn’t training for a fight.

[…] Now that he [Gaethje] has more time, he will get better prepared. We know he has heavy hands, hits really hard, so anything can happen. But I still think Tony Ferguson wins

[he has a few targets in mind] Looks like Dustin Poirier will fight that skinny guy, Dan Hooker, so the only ones left are Conor McGregor, Donald Cerrone and Paul Felder. Since Cerrone was one of the last fights I lost, who knows. I’ve been asking for a fight with Conor McGregor for a while, but if it doesn’t happen, we’ll see
