Michael Oliveira: “Thanks (Team Adriel) for coming here to my home country and giving me this opportunity to expand. May the best man win.”

Abel Nicolas Adriel:”I’m very happy to be here. I feel strong for this fight. It’s important for me to be part of this event and a great opportunity for my career.”

“Michael is a very good fighter, so it’s going to be a good fight. Both of us are still developing and this fight is good for both or out careers.”

“I am very confident and fully prepared to win. I’ve trained two months for this fight. I’m looking forward to winning the title and bringing it home to Argentina.”
