That’s exactly what I’m excited to see, everybody is scared to go to the ground with Charles but that’s essentially all Islam looks to do with his opponents. Can Islam control him on the ground while Oliveira only needs the smallest of windows to slip in a sub! I Wanted this fight to happen, I think it’s gonna be fireworks!
