UFC 269: Oliveira vs. Poirier expert preview
Oliveira (31-8-1) has been on the UFC roster for more than 11 years, but many MMA observers are just becoming familiar with him. This is in large part because the Brazilian fighter keeps a relatively low profile away from the cage and doesn’t engage in self-promotion or trash talk on social media. What’s more, he had mixed results until his recent nine-fight winning streak.
Oliveira split his first four UFC fights, with losses against journeymen Jim Miller and Donald Cerrone. He struggled against upper-tier competition for most of his career before stepping up his dedication and commitment to the sport.
His career resurgence reached a pinnacle in May, when he outclassed former Bellator champion Michael Chandler for the vacant title and won a UFC crown in his first title bout.
There are many observers who believe Poirier is the only active lightweight who is capable of dethroning Oliveira. The Louisiana native passed on the opportunity to fight for the title in May, opting for a massive payday in a trilogy with McGregor while allowing Chandler to take the opening.
However, the top-ranked Poirier has long insisted that his career wouldn’t be complete without a UFC title and insists this is the most important fight of his career. His lone defeat in the last 10 appearances came against Khabib Nurmagomedov, who retired last year as an undefeated champion. You can only see who to back at SportsLine.
Top UFC 269 predictions
We’ll share one of Marley’s UFC 269 selections here: He is siding with Bruno Silva (-350) to get the best of Jordan Wright (+290) in a battle of middleweight prospects.
Silva (21-6) is a power puncher who caught the attention of UFC brass while dominating opponents in promotions such as M-1 Challenge and Immortal FC. The 32-year-old Brazilian has stopped his first two UFC opponents and is coming off a third-round stoppage of fellow prospect Andrew Sanchez in October.
Wright (12-1-1) is noted for his versatility and athleticism. The 30-year-old Texan has won to of his first three UFC appearances, including a first-round stoppage of Jamie Pickett in May.
“Silva has a big power edge and I see him being the one pushing forward and throwing bombs. I think he lands a big one early and finishes this fight,” Marley told SportsLine.
