Oliveira vs Makhachev Prediction

UFC 280 Oliveira-Makhachev prediction is from Tapology Fight Predictions.
Winner: Charles Oliveira (68%)
Method of Victory: KO/TKO (47%)

Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev are competing for the vacant UFC Lightweight Championship. Oliveira was actually the former champion but was stripped of the title once he failed to make weight at UFC 274. Nevertheless, the Brazilian battler still enters UFC 280 riding an 11-fight winning streak.

Meanwhile, this is Makhachev's first shot at UFC gold. He's won 10 straight fights in several different ways and hasn't come close to losing. Makhachev also has the superior defense in this fight and even though he hasn't faced a force as dominant as Oliveira, he still has the tools to get the job done in the end.

In a fight between two submission specialists, give me Makhachev winning by submission at +210.
