Is it Michael Chandler VS Charles Oliveria or UFC VS Bellator?

Michael started his journey in combat sports at Bellator before switching over to UFC. Scott Coker was asked to say few words about Michael and his time at Bellator. He said, “Michael is home-grown here, and he’s had a lot of fights. I’m not surprised at all because he was our world champ for a while until he was beat by ‘Pitbull.’ So to me, I always felt like if he’s going to go over there.”

Scott is happy for Michael as he entered a new world and proved himself in just two matches. Michael Chandler fights and represents UFC, but he’s honed his talent at Bellator. Another upside for Bellator MMA is that ‘Pitbull’ will also have a claim as one of the best because he beat Chandler.

To lay claim as the best lightweight fighter, Michael Chandler must beat Charles Oliveira, who’s coming off an epic eight-win streak. A magnificent match awaits us all.
