Charles Oliveira is on a 10-fight winning streak having stopped his opponents in 9 of those fights. He fought twice last year, claiming and defending the Lightweight title in the process. He has 32 wins from 41 starts.
Justin Gaethje has won 23 of his 26 fights and has been described as "the human wrecking ball" in many circles.
This is one of the harder fights to split, but Oliveira keeps defying expectation and continues to silence the critics. We think he'll sneak through again.
