"Save This Video" - Khabib Nurmagomedov Rubbishes Charles Oliveira's Ground Game

Charles Oliveira, on his 11-win streak is looking unstoppable, and making his way towards being the greatest in the lightweight division.

In his last fight, he made the then #1 contender Justin Gaethje submit in the first round.

Now that Oliveira is one of the biggest names in the lightweight division, many are eyeing for a shot against him.

Fans and UFC lightweights are highly impressed with Oliveira's achievements in the recent times.

But not everyone seems to be impressed by the skills of DoBronx, including the former champion himself Khabib!

In a recent video, Khabib was seen insulting Oliveira, explaining Cejudo and Usman how he is incapable of winning the bout against Makhachev.

While Oliveira seems uninterested in going against Makhachev, Khabib believes that he is totally underestimating his potential rival.

"Save this video because a lot of people underestimate Islam. They think Charles Oliveira have ground game. You don't have ground game, if you tap eight times, how you can say you have ground game." Khabib said. 

Nurmagomedov has been rooting for an ultimate showdown between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev.

However, Oliveira has admitted to be keen on facing McGregor or Diaz next.
