Conor McGregor seems to be almost everyone's dream opponent, the former UFC lightweight champion is still strongly inclined to fight McGregor; Oliveira does not care about the weight class; he just wants to fight him. A fight with McGregor interests many because of the guaranteed scalability – it's bound to be of massive success, and that leads to a handsome payday of a lifetime.
Oliveira will be fighting against Islam Makhachev for the rematch on the 21st of October; in this previous encounter, Oliveira landed a disappointing performance; he was submitted by Makhachev, and it will be very interesting to see if Oliveira can get vengeance for the bitter defeat.
Charles Oliveira is one step away from snatching everything away from Islam Makhachev. After the last match, one thing is pretty evident that Oliveira needs a solid ground game if he wishes to secure a win.
Charles Oliveira on fighting Conor McGregor
Recently on The MMA Hour, Charles Oliveira revealed that he is still willing to fight Conor McGregor and is waiting for Conor to accept the fight and walk his talk.
"What's happening is that I'm here — I'm just waiting for him," Oliveira said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. "All he needs to do is tell me the place and the time, and I'll be there." "I don't know, I'm here — where is Conor?" "170, 183 [pounds], doesn't matter, All he needs to do is stop and do it".
Oliveira looked very threatening in his recent fight against Beneil Dariush; Oliveira scored one more 1st round TKO victory – it shows that Oliveira is hungry to win and reclaim his lightweight belt. Perhaps after Charles Oliveira's fight against Islam Makhachev, he could aim to fight McGregor after it.
Interestingly, McGregor does not seem to be very interested in having his comeback match against Michael Chandler; He called out Justin Gaethje and also unveiled his intentions to fight Nate Diaz for a trilogy match.
