Former UFC Champion Charles Oliveira is promising violence when he fights Beneil Dariush. Oliveira, who is coming off a loss to Islam Makhachev, is looking to get another title shot by securing a win over Dariush.

Speaking to MMA fighting recently, he said that he is going to hunt in the fight and does not care how he finishes the fight.

“I’ve said [how I’ll win] it before, I’ve been wrong before — and I won’t be wrong again. I’ll tell you the truth, being real here, I’ll hunt in this fight. I’ll walk forward the entire time. I don’t care if it’s a knockout, a submission, or a decision, I’ll hunt in this fight,” he said to MMA Fighting

Speaking further, Oliveira reminded everyone that his fights are never boring.

“I can’t say I’ll do a strategic fight, that I’ll be waiting. No, that’s not Charles fighting. Charles walks forward, he hunts the entire time. So if you want to watch a boring fight, don’t come watch my fight. You’ll see me get knocked down, dropped, and get back up. Like you said, [Dariush] has been knocked out before, he’s been submitted. He has holes, just like I do. That’s what matters the most, wanting to win no matter what,” he added.

Oliveira's loss to Makhachev was his first since December 2017, ending an 11-fight winning streak that included 10 finishes.

Dariush, on the other hand, is riding the finest form of his 14-year career, having won eight consecutive races. Dariush's most recent victory came the same night Oliveira faced Makhachev in October 2022, when he won a unanimous decision over Mateusz Gamrot.
