UFC lightweight Charles Oliveira designs on contacting out the winner of Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier from a front-row seat at UFC 257.
Oliveira is at present using an eight-battle gain streak in the UFC lightweight division, punctuated by a lopsided unanimous selection victory more than Tony Ferguson at UFC 256. Oliveira has been vocal about his want to get a title shot, but so considerably we have not listened to affirmation that he will combat for the belt. There have been rumors that Oliveira could battle Justin Gaethje, but if it was up to Oliveira, he would get on the winner of McGregor vs. Poirier following.
Speaking to AG Fight, Oliveira explained that he’s hoping to journey to Abu Dhabi and be entrance-row at UFC 257 so he can phone out the key celebration winner in particular person. Even though he preferably needs to battle UFC light-weight winner Khabib Nurmagomedov up coming, he is aware the winner of McGregor vs. Poirier is a additional sensible target and that is why he designs on staying at UFC 257 in man or woman.
“The only guy who will come from eight straight wins, using everybody for practically nothing, is termed Charles Oliveira. This is the only man who ought to combat Khabib. There is no other way to be taken. There will be a fight among Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor, and I just have to sit in the front row, ready for which of the two will appear to struggle me,” Oliveira stated.
“My supervisor is negotiating this (likely to Abu Dhabi). But I also have my foot on the ground, I know that we are in a pandemic, that it is hard for issues to occur. So, I understand if they cannot acquire me. I genuinely required to be there in the initial row, observing (McGregor vs. Poirier) due to the fact this struggle speaks volumes (for the upcoming).”
At this place, Oliveira would seem like he’s just one particular more earn absent from obtaining a title shot. No matter whether that is once again the winner of McGregor vs. Poirier or towards Gaethje, what he’s been executing the past number of many years at light-weight has been outstanding and a ninth straight win must get paid him a title shot at 155lbs. His potential in the immediate title photo rests on the conclusion of Nurmagomedov, who will meet with UFC president Dana White later this thirty day period about his belt.
Do you believe Charles Oliveira will combat the winner of Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier for the UFC lightweight title?
