UFC making errors is nothing new. While the problem with the microphone during press conferences and errors in the official merchandise continues to haunt the American promotion, the UFC has often made grave errors that often reflect their callous attitude. Ahead of UFC 264, Charles Oliveira made his presence felt as he stepped inside the T-Mobile arena in a Versace suit, a gold chain wrapped around his neck, and the shining and shimmering UFC lightweight championship belt on his shoulders.
However, what caught fans’ attention was the glaring error in the spelling of Charles Oliveira on the UFC lightweight memento gifted to the UFC lightweight by the UFC. In a photo shared by the current UFC lightweight champion, Oliveira’s name is misspelled to “Olivera” in what is an extremely careless approach by the UFC.

In the past, the promotion had banners of the hugely anticipated Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje fight with Gaethje’s name misspelled to “Gajthe.”
🧐 maybe they should just go with Khabib vs Justin 😂 pic.twitter.com/T6bjvymi2d

Needless to say, UFC will have to be a little more careful and take these things more seriously. The mistake definitely shows UFC’s lack of attention to detail.
Charles Oliveira knows a fight with Conor McGregor means money
Charles Oliveira is well aware of the fact that a fight with Conor McGregor involves a lot of money, and it won’t be wrong to say that he would be hoping for McGregor to win the UFC 264 trilogy. However, the Brazilian ace has stated that he is a mixed martial artist first, and is not hoping for McGregor to win just because he brings in more moolah.
Oliveira is ready to take on any challenge and believes he has the ability to stop both fighters. Oliveira grabbed the UFC lightweight championship with a vicious stoppage win over Michael Chandler in the main event of UFC 263.
