Charles Oliveira’s Odds To Beat Chandler
Charles Oliveira’s rapid ascent is no surprise. He’s been highly active since 2018, fighting eight times in that span and winning all.
Oliveira’s most impressive win was back in December 2020. He beat Tony Ferguson via unanimous decision at the co-main event in UFC 256.
The bout against Chandler will be his first career headliner, and it’s catching him at a fantastic time.
