Khabib and Islam Makhachev “dominate” Charles Oliveira according to Mendez


There is no doubt that Javier Mendez, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Islam Makhachev would largely beat Charles Oliveira if they clash.

After giving his opinion yesterday that Charles Oliveira is due to face Conor McGregor for his next Octagon appearance, Khabib and Islam Makhachev coach Javier Mendez said his athletes will completely dominate the reigning lightweight champion:

I know they would both beat Charles, in my opinion, because look, they’re both my fighters. Stylistically, Islam can punch, it can kick. Khabib was not a big kicker. Khabib should go straight grappling with Charles and possibly dominate him in that area. In fact, I know he would. I know Khabib would rule him, and I think in my opinion that as tall as Charles is, Islam would rule him too. “

Javier Mendez (had) Khabib and Islam as students and created the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) recognized by all as a very good MMA gym. Khabib held the lightweight title from April 2018 to March 2021 and is currently retired, as for Islam Makhachev, he is due to face Beneil Dariush at UFC 272 on February 26. If he wins, he wouldn’t be far from having a title shot.
