Islam Makhachev overwhelming favorite for UFC 280 headlining bout against Charles Oliveira

It will be 11 – 0 vs. 10 – 0 when Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev collide at UFC 280 to determine the new undisputed 155-pound champion.

Unbeaten since what was his second promotional appearance back in late 2015, Makhachev, according to oddsmakers, opens as the favorite over ‘Do Bronx’ at -220. The Brazilian, meanwhile, is listed as an underdog at +185.

Makhachev, ranked number four, improved his octagon record to 11 – 1 with a one-round TKO win over Bobby Green during the UFC Vegas 49 main event. The Dagestani has finished his last four fights.

Oliveira, stripped of his crown by a half-pound, further lengthened his finishing record by submitting Justin Gaethje in one round on May 7. The Chute Box member has not known defeat since 2017.

UFC 280 will take place this October 22 from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi.
