Charles Oliveira Discusses Winning Fight Night Bonuses and Fighting in New Zealand
Posted by Larry Csonka on 06.23.2014

- Charles Oliveira recently spoke about this weekend's fight with Hatsu Hioki and more. Here are the highlights…

On Winning Fight Night Bonuses: "This is the first time the UFC goes to New Zealand. excited to be a part of that. To fight in new places, that's being a part of MMA history. And as far as my bonus wins and nice words from the UFC, it shows that people really like to see me fight. I respect my opponents, but regardless of who it is, I'm always moving forward. I always aim to face the best fighters."

On Fighting Hatsu Hioki: "I'm well aware of the brick wall I'll be facing. I always ask for the toughest opponents. Hioki is very tough and experienced, but like I said, I always move ahead. I'm working hard to my ground and standup games. I'm not going there to just fight. I'm going there to win."

On Learning From His Mistakes: "Despite losing to Frankie, I always moved ahead, I tried to take him down, I defended takedowns, and I traded on the feet against him," Oliveira said of the decision loss, which earned "Fight of the Night" honors. "At the end of each round, you could see the damage I inflicted, but unfortunately I lost. I came home and learned tenfold from my mistakes. Thankfully, the crowd in Jaragua do Sul helped me a lot against Ogle, and I was victorious. I think the UFC appreciates the fact that I'm putting in good work."

On His Strategy For Hioki: "If I take him down, it's to use my jiu-jitsu," Oliveira said. "We're putting together the best strategy against him. Ultimately it's going to be a very busy and active fight. Whoever makes a mistake will pay the price. I just hope it it won't be me. It's in God's hands. … If Hioki makes an error, I see myself catching him in a submission. But he's very tough. And what really matters is that I get the win, no matter how."
