Charles Oliveira vs Arman Tsarukyan Face Off UFC 300

Black Belt Plus

Just before jetting off to Las Vegas for UFC 300, Charles Oliveira dropped some heartwarming news—he's expecting a son. As the former lightweight champ gears up to reclaim his title, he's not just fueled by the usual fighter's grit but by some extra special dad vibes this time around.

"Man, knowing my son is on the way just pumps me up so much," Oliveira shared with “I've been here before when my daughter was born, and it kicked off a killer winning streak for me. I'm feeling that good luck charm might just work its magic again.”

And Charles has every reason to hope for a repeat of that luck. His track record has been nothing short of stellar; he kicked off an 11-fight win streak back in 2018, taking down big names like Clay Guida, Jim Miller, and Tony Ferguson. He snagged the lightweight crown from Michael Chandler and held it strong against Dustin Poirier.

But life threw a curveball at Oliveira when he lost to Islam Makhachev at UFC 280. He bounced back with a win against Beneil Dariush and was all set for a rematch with Makhachev until a pesky injury sidelined him. Now, he’s gearing up to take on the No. 4 ranked lightweight, Arman Tsarukyan, in a bout Dana White is calling the fight for the next title contender.

Oliveira is clear about his spot in line: “I’m the guy to beat if you want a shot at the title. I’m sitting at number one, and I’m ready to prove why I deserve to fight for that belt again.”

With a UFC career that started back in 2010, Oliveira is no stranger to the Octagon. He holds the records for the most finishes, submission wins, and bonuses in UFC history. His time-tested skills and the unyielding spirit of Chute Boxe make him a tough competitor.

While Tsarukyan might be eyeing future fights, Oliveira is laser-focused on the present. “What really counts is how stoked and happy I am to step into that ring,” he stated. “I’m all in, ready to win by any means.”

Being a beloved fighter and a veteran of the sport, Oliveira feels privileged to be part of UFC 300, a historic event celebrating the legends of the game.

This Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena, it’s not just about winning for Oliveira; it’s about starting another epic chapter in his UFC saga. “I’m dead set on getting that belt back,” he said, ready to turn the page to his next big win.
