Charles Oliveira Claps Back At Arman Tsarukyan

Charles Oliveira vs Arman Tsarukyan

Charles Oliveira has hit back at Arman Tsarukyan’s pre-fight trash talk.

Oliveira and Tsarukyan are gearing up for their UFC 300 showdown, which will likely earn the winner a shot at Islam Makhachev’s lightweight belt. The stakes for the fight couldn’t be higher, which is why the rising sensation is trying to get under the skin of the veteran Brazilian.

Recently, Tsarukyan suggested Oliveira was one-dimensional and that he mostly secures wins through rear-naked chokes.

However, Oliveira swiftly fired back at his opponent, emphasizing that while he has secured many victories through a RNC, he possesses a diverse range of techniques to end fights.

“People say what they want, right?” Oliveira said in an interview with MMA Fighting. “If I only have that, and I have 16 submissions on my [UFC] record, I guess they were all from the back, right? And I guess the knockouts I have weren’t knockouts, they were submissions. It’s too much bulls*** they talk. It was said that I’m a quitter, but I was knocked down, walked forward and knocked them out. I also heard I’m not hungry, that I don’t want it anymore. He doesn’t know how bad I want to become champion again.”

If anything, Oliveira doesn’t take trash talking seriously.

“He’s super tough, is on a good run, etc,” Oliveira said. “But we’re talking about guys at the top of the division. You have to chill before you say anything because you’re not talking about anyone, I’m the No. 1 in this division. I have the record for most submissions, most bonuses. If you look at my history, you’ll see you’re talking crap.”
