Former UFC champion Anderson Silva believes that Charles Oliveira can outclass Islam Makhachev at UFC 280 in Abu Dhabi.

Silva talked about the same during his recent interview with Full Send MMA. He also revealed that the new generation of Brazilians knows Charles Oliveira more than the Gracies.

“Charles Oliveira is an amazing fighter, and nobody can talk about him because the kid is doing something very crazy and training hard, training a lot for many many years, no I think you start to see more of your value in the company.  Of course, Charles Do Bronx is going to win bro, of course,” Anderson Silva noted.

Anthony Smith also picks Charles Oliveira

The former Middleweight champion has been a huge supporter of Oliveira for a long time now. In fact, he is not the only one that has picked Oliveira for the win. UFC Star Anthony Smith detailed in a recent interview how Oliveira can outclass Makhachev. He also noted that he is done betting against the Brazilian.

“I’m not going to do it anymore. I always, always, I don’t want to say discredit, but I always doubt Charles Oliveira. Then afterwards I tell myself why do you do that? Cause I have a lot of respect for that guy but even going into the Poirier fight, well Poirier’s kind of the uncrowned champion here and I believe in Charles Oliveira but I think Poirier gets this done. I did the same thing with Chandler. I’m not doing it anymore,” he said in a recent interview with MMA Fighting.
