Vinicius Oliveira calls out Umar Nurmagomedov after UFC 303: ‘He retains working’

LAS VEGAS – Only one combat into his UFC profession, Vinicius Oliveira shot a fairly large shot Saturday in Las Vegas.

Oliveira (20-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) outworked Ricky Simon (20-5 MMA, 8-4 UFC) for a unanimous choice to open up UFC 303 at T-Cell Enviornment, the anchor of Worldwide Battle Week. Then he referred to as out unbeaten bantamweight standout Umar Nurmagomedov, cousin of former UFC champ Khabib.

“I’d prefer to combat a lot in opposition to Umar Nurmagomedov,” Oliveira mentioned at his UFC 303 post-fight information convention. “He was altering some dangerous phrases on Instagram, on social media. However he’s petrified of me proper now. He should have watched my final combat right here and he is aware of that it’s not straightforward to place me on the bottom. I’m a nightmare for him.

“I believe he’ll refuse to combat in opposition to me, so I want to combat in opposition to Dominick Cruz, possibly, I do know that (Nurmagomedov has a combat), however I believe he was working away from me.”

Whereas asking for Nurmagomedov might appear to be Oliveira is fast-tracking himself, he’s obtained a plan in place.

“I don’t want many fights to combat for the belt,” he mentioned. “I believe in round two years, I’ll be preventing for the belt. And Dana (White) – Mr. D, how I say his title – Mr. D, my boss, he can put me to combat for the belt this 12 months. The tip of the 12 months, I’ll be able to combat for the belt, however he can select all my fights that I’ll be ready for anybody.”
