Brazilian Gilbert Burns praised the performances of his compatriot Charles Oliveira, believing that the former lightweight champion was one level above all other fighters.
Gilbert Burns is full of praise for Charles Oliveira’s performances in the octagon.
It must be said that the Brazilian, apart from his missed weigh-in on the sidelines of his fight against Justin Gaethje, who cost him his championship belt, is particularly impressive.
So much so that he is in a debate over who is the best lightweight in history between him and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
For his compatriot Gilbert Burns, who delivered a Dantesque fight against Khamzat Chimaev at UFC 273, the question does not even arise.
For him, Charles Oliveira evolves at a level well above any other fighter (via HelenYeeSports):
“They are different… Khabib was the guy who did the hardest thing: stay undefeated. All respect, but now he’s gone. As I said, Oliveira has been there since he was super young.
He got into the fire fighting everyone. He is on an 11-0 streak without counting all the finishes.
It’s crazy, isn’t it? And he finished Justin Gaethje in the first round and Dustin Poirier in the second round. If you don’t knock it out, it submits to you.
“I’m a fan of both, but for now, Oliveira is unbeatable. If they do this fight, Khabib is different, but I don’t know, brother. Oliveira is on a different level right now.
For Durinho, even if his heart swings, the level displayed by his Brazilian compatriot exceeds everything. It is, for him, the best lightweight of all time.
And for you, who is the best between Khabib and Charles Oliveira?
