Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will Fight This Saturday, May 15, 2021 in UFC 262 Lightweight At The Toyoto Center, Houston, Texas, USA and Watch on PPV, ESPN+

Charles Oliveira (30-8-1) has won eight fights in a row and is coming off a December win over Tony Ferguson by decision at UFC 256, where he landed 86 total strikes and produced three tackles.

Oliveira has yet to lose a fight since UFC 218 and now won three of his four career decisions. Charles Oliveira is one of the best fighters with a great takedown percentage with a high quality submission game where no one wants to fight him on the mat.

Oliveira has 19 submission wins including seven rear choke wins. Oliveira is known for his rudimentary ground play, but has also shown that he can fight off the mat by mixing kicks with his legs and going in and out with his combinations.

Michael Chandler (22-5) has won six of his last seven fights and is coming off a January win over Dan Hooker via first-round knockout at UFC 257.

Chandler landed 17 strikes total in his UFC debut and 70 for percent of his significant strikes. Chandler has a wrestling experience having seven submission wins in his career and four of those wins have been by butt choke.

Chandler has also become more comfortable on his feet, as we saw in his last fight.

Prediction and Picks

Oliveira has to be the favorite in this fight as he has proven his worth, he has not lost in a while and has shown impressive improvement within the octagon and is a nightmare on the mat and is more comfortable with his standup. For his part, Chandler has a wrestling experience to defend himself if this fight goes to the ground and has more than polished legitimate knockout power. He can make a strong case for either party here, but Chandler has every chance to drop us money in this fight.

 

WINNER: Michael Chandler @ +115
