Oliveira vs Makhachev official for UFC 280 on October 22 for the Lightweight championship

I think most people saw this coming but is finally official. The former (and legit ) UFC lightweight champ- Charles Oliveira returns to face what many think will be his greatest challenge, Islam Makhachev. Islam is a protege of former Undefeated UFC champ- Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Khabib and Islam both feel that this will be a win for Makhachev, but Charles expects to finish Islam and he will then call out Khabib himself.

Thought Khabib is retired, he previously said he would only return if Islam lost; with a win Oliveira will put that to the test.
