ANALYSIS

Islam Makhachev vs. Charles Oliveira Prediction: How Long with This Main Event Fight Last at UFC 280?

After months of careful deliberation and absolutely unequivocal amounts of hype, UFC 280 is finally upon us, an event surely to deliver on any and all promises to the fans as it is poised as being more or less the first ever MMA Olympics in my eyes, a festivity were fans both causal and hardcore can come together to embrace any and all things violent. Islam Makhachev leads the charge taking on Charles Olivera, but make no mistake this card is for the boys as from top to bottom the card is irreligiously stacked, with Nurmagomedovs and fiery number one contenders populating the top bill and our egregious betting minds.

Islam Makhachev vs. Charles Oliveira Prediction

Here is one such line from the contests that I feel is a must-play and well worth your investment, especially if you capitalize and take it early on in the week to avoid potential sudden movements by the oddsmakers or general books.

It's no secret that the main attraction of UFC 280 has two bombastic heavy hitters in their own way going toe to toe with one another other for our hearts' content and enjoyment. From the explosivity of Oliviera's Muay Thai to the hellacious ground and pound of Islam, there is no shortage of violence being put on full display here. Because they are both so visceral and deadly, you would think the under would be a surefire lock to dump your bank account on, it's just too plausible of a narrative to go with.

If you were in that preconceived notion of thought I hate to disappoint you unfortunately at the end of the day but I think that's the least likely scenario out of the two. The fact of the matter is when two high-level mixed martial artists, especially ones of grappling backgrounds come to blows, the skill level between the couple cancels each other out more often than not. They can simply negate the threats on the ground or on the feet, nullifying any and all attack scenarios that come their way.

If Charles somehow rocks Islam standing, Micky Makhachev can simply clinch at will and chain wrestle Oliviera down as if his life depended on it. While the side is definitely situated in the camp containing the likes of Khabib and Javier Mendez, ultimately elect to play the over 1.5 as you never truly know with a kill-or-be-killed fighter like Charles sharing the Octagon with you.
