Charles Oliveira says he has learned from his mistake and will not be trash talking the UFC Lightweight champion Islam Makhachev ahead of their rematch slated for UFC 294.

Oliveira and Makhachev locked horns back in October at UFC 280, when the Brazilian was still the 155-pound champ and was dethroned by the Dagestani via second round submission.

While the fight was heavily one sided and the lightweight gold returned back to Dagestan, Oliveira acknowledged that he did not fight to his ability, and his emotions got the better of him.

We can only make mistakes once in life: Charles Oliveira

Now, as “Do Bronx” is gearing up for the rematch against Makhachev, he vows to not engage in any trash talking the reigning champion, as he says he has learned from his mistake.

“That’s the only fight I talked crap, the fight against Islam,” said Olivier on MMA Fighting’s Trocação Franca. “I made a mistake. I won’t make that mistake again. We can only make mistakes once in life. When you make a mistake once, you can’t do it a second time, otherwise you’ll go down nonstop. I won’t do it again.”

“If you look at all of my fights, you’ll see that night I didn’t fight 10 percent of what I can do,” he went on. “Not a hater, not an analyst that is constantly saying crap, but people that understand fighting. If you watch everything I’ve said for all my fights, the only one where I’ve [gone outside my norm] a little bit and said some things, talked some crap, was the one against Islam, and I won’t make that mistake again.”

“We want to make history,” Oliveira added. “Islam is very tough, deserves all respect in the world, he’s evolving immensely, but I have a dream. I want to become champion again. I want to continue making history, showing the kids from the favela that if you truly believe in something you can win in life. We’re here to break records.”
