Russian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter Islam Makhachev has accused his rival Brazilian Charles Oliveira of trying to avoid a fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). It is reported by Metaratings.

The 30-year-old native of Makhachkala recalled that Oliveira did not seek to challenge him to a fight, being the UFC lightweight champion. “When he fought Dustin Poirier or Justin Gaethje, he didn’t care about money. When he needs to compete with me, he remembers the money, says he wants a fight in Brazil, ”the Russian reproached the opponent, calling his behavior shameful.

In early August, Oliveira admitted that he did not want to agree to a duel against Makhachev. The Brazilian noted that he intended to hold another fight for more money.
