Charles Oliveira or Khabib Nurmagomedov, who will win this dream matchup?
Even though Khabib is retired it's hard not to imagine how would a fight between him and Oliveira would play out.
Both Khabib and Oliveira have some common opponents such as Dustin Poirier and Justin Gaethje.
And it's hard to deny that Oliveira's wins over Gaethje and Poirier were more impressive than Khabib's.
However, it must be considered that Oliveira has been droped multiple times in his last three fights. But, Khabib has never been knocked down in his career.
But, in a fight between, Charles Oliveira and Khabib Nurmagomedov, it's hard to imagine a scenario where Khabib drops Oliveira.
Do Brnox is a better striker than Khabib Nurmagomedov and he will certainly win the striking battle.
Unlike the past opponents of Khabib, Oliveira will not be afraid of getting taken down because of his elite level of grappling and submission skills.
And Oliveira was putting on relentless pressure on gaethje even after getting dropped twice.
And it won't be surprising if he does the same to Khabib if they ever share the octagon.
Khabib was certainly the best lightweight of his time,
But if Khabib takes on Charles Oliveira, who is still showing improvement with every fight, he will likely lose the fight.
