Charles Oliveira’s extremely energetic championship run received nothing but praise from the public.
The upcoming fight between Oliveira and Islam Makhachev will be the Brazilian’s fourth title fight in 1.5 years, according to Instagram account CombaTalk.
It should be noted that Oliveira’s battle against Makhachev at UFC 280 will technically be his third title fight as the belt was stripped from him ahead of his last fight with Justin Gaethje. Fans nonetheless continue to praise his active run and acclaim him as the undisputed champion.
Another comparison made by some fans was between Charles Oliveira’s run and that of former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. During his tenure of approximately two and a half years, “The Eagle” won four championships. User @samedmks wrote:

Additionally, regardless of weight class, “The Eagle” hailed Oliveira as the best UFC fighter of 2022 and one of the best on the entire roster. A local Dagestani wrote the caption:
“Just creepy waiting. Islam Makhachev is coming out for this fight against the best fighter in the UFC right now. Oliveira is the best fighter of 2022. He is one of the best regardless of weight class , is also going on a 12-fight UFC winning streak. This fight will answer all questions. Someone reads history, and someone writes it. Prepare your apologies, we aim to win Oliveira sooner than provided InshaAllah. translated from Russian via Google
