At UFC 280, can Charles Oliveira be able to put an end to Islam Makhachev’s relentless wrestling? Alireza Noei, who has been responsible for Chute Boxe’s wrestling training since 2015, believes that Makhachev will not only perform very well defensively but also rack up takedowns.

During this week’s episode of the Trocao Franca podcast, Noei said that Charles has hefty hands, which gives him an edge. “[Makhachev] has come a long way, and as a result, he does not shrink away from fighting on his own back.
A friend of mine who trains at AKA told me that Islam has excellent jiu-jitsu, and I believe him.
He will most certainly attempt to utilize his wrestling to take Charles down and hold him, dominate the match, and win rounds, but Charles has trained enough to be able to break Islam’s game with his wrestling.
Noei provided the following response when asked how Oliveira will “break” Makhachev inside the octagon: “Charles won’t be put down, and he will take Islam down.” He made the statement that “Makhachev’s head will be messed up when he goes down.”
[Further citation is required] “Charles will put an end to him when the time is right, and the opportunity presents itself. The quality of Charles’s wrestling has advanced noticeably in recent years.
Watch how he completely destroys Tony Ferguson in their fight and sends him tumbling to the ground many times. The religion of Islam will be brought to its knees by him.”
Noei, who is himself a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter with a record of 7-2 after failing in his attempt to compete at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, gives Makhachev credit for his success in MMA.
Oliveira Faces Makhachev Next
However, Noei expects Oliveira to “shock the world” on Saturday night. Oliveira is scheduled to compete against Makhachev on Saturday night. Oliveira is slated to go up against Makhachev in the competition.
It was projected by Noei that Charles would have a success rate of 80% in his chase of the target if he pulled him down to the ground. But I think Charles will either knock him out or force him to tap out in the third round or win by decision after five rounds of fighting.
On the other hand, I believe that Charles will either knock him out or force him to tap out in the third round. When it comes to this fight, everyone is going to be in for a big surprise. Alexander Volkanovski might be the next fighter in line for the winner of Oliveira vs. Makhachev.
Volkanovski is moving up from lightweight after completely dominating the featherweight division as champion. Oliveira vs. Makhachev will take place on December 15. The fight between Oliveira and Makhachev is scheduled for December 8th.
However, Noei does not believe him to be a serious threat since he has seen him “do the Bronx” finish Justin Gaethje, Dustin Poirier, Michael Chandler, and Kevin Lee throughout the last few years.
According to a quote attributed to Noei, “Chad Mendes was successful in taking him down during their battle, [but] even after he was knocked out, he fought valiantly.” “He’s the 145 champions, and he’s terrific heavy fists, but someone with strong wrestling knocks him down.”
“He fought valiantly even after he was knocked out.” During their fight, the first time he landed a big hand on Charles, Charles knocked him down and then captured him. After that, Charles continued their fight.
“Charles will have no trouble understanding this. Charles had no trouble understanding the instructions. Wrestling is not one of his strong points. If this fight goes the distance, he will emerge victorious in the first round.
