UFC Alex Oliveira expects ‘historic’ Niko Price fight Tv Channel
Alex Oliveira thinks his UFC Fight Night 193 matchup with Niko Price is going to deliver on expectations.
Oliveira (21-10-1 MMA, 11-8 UFC) and Price (14-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC) are set to clash in a welterweight bout on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card streams on ESPN+.
Given their previous performances, Oliveira vs. Price has “Fight of the Night” potential written all over it. The Brazilian agrees, and said it’s going to be a can’t miss affair as both men look to break winless skids.
“He’s like me – he does not decline opponents, he comes to fight like I do,” Oliveira told MMA Junkie and other reporters through an interpreter at Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 193 media day. “He loves to do this like I do and I can’t wait. … This is going to be historic. I need a victory so that’s the main focus.”
