Charles Oliveira Withdraws From UFC 288, Beneil Dariush Fight Postponed

Disappointing news for fight fans! Former UFC lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, has been forced to withdraw from his highly anticipated fight against Beneil Dariush at UFC 288 due to a minor injury. This is heartbreaking for Oliveira, who was undoubtedly eager to prove himself and possibly secure a shot at the title against Islam Makhachev.

Dariush, on the other hand, has been on a roll lately, winning eight consecutive fights and earning the right to challenge for the lightweight championship. He must be feeling mixed emotions as he looks to stay in the title picture while waiting for a new date to face Oliveira.

It’s a frustrating setback for Oliveira, who had been training hard for this clash with Dariush. We can only imagine how he must be feeling, knowing that he’s missing out on a huge opportunity. Hopefully, his injury is not too severe, and he can recover quickly to get back to the octagon.

UFC planning to reschedule the fight for later this year

Fans were eagerly looking forward to UFC 288, but with the cancellation of the featherweight matchup between Bryce Mitchell and Jonathan Pearce, the event is now two fights thin. However, the UFC is looking for a replacement to face Mitchell.

We hope that Oliveira recovers soon and that the UFC is able to reschedule this much-awaited bout between two top contenders.
