Especially after wearing the Flamengo shirt to try to be the Corinthians ambassador.
– He gave the Flamengo shirt, which was a very good team in Brazil, but that would not reach the feet of the Corinthians. I am Corinthians, I am real. My soul is the Corinthians, I am the Corinthians Ambassador. Fools are people who believe he is a flamengo athlete because he wears a Flamengo shirt to upset me. He gave me the Flamengo shirt and it did not change anything, I was just happier because I could see that he was trying to get into my head something, like that I would. ” go beyond hell “, I have never been so close. The man above took care of me and he never let me get near that.

– They need me for something to enter my mind. They talk about my past, they talk about me now, they try to talk about something, but really, like I said: they will not understand. They said I could not make up my mind, I would give up, I would cross around and just carry the bag into the ring and go home. I take the cup down, I bleed, I get up, I move forward, I make it happen, I fail, I turn the fight and I win. They have nothing more to say. The two fights that I fought, got up and made it happen – he said, about the fight that he beat Michael Chandler, for no belt, and then in the fight lastly, when it comes to name protection. Dustin Poirier.
But despite Gaethje trying to make it unrecognizable before the fight, this time the audience seemed to understand the value of the Brazilian. For the first time in a recent battle Charles Charles Bronx arrived as a favorite in bookmakers.
– Arriving here for the first time by a bookmaker as a favorite is a fantastic gift. But it does not change anything, we must work in the same way, focus, look ahead in search of our dream, which is to gain this legacy, and came out with the victory, raised our arms, and said. we can grow and evolve, not just Charles but every group as a whole.

He was a very tough man, walking forward, just as I was walking forward. He was a man that everyone said had a good race, good hands, but I saw the outside. What is the other side? His name is Charles Oliveira, he is an MMA fighter, a complete guy, standing up and on the ground. My heart is armored, my soul is armored, I go with God once more.
