Charles Oliveira, who might be fighting Islam Makhachev for the UFC lightweight title, is still open to a fight with Conor McGregor. Despite their recent online feud, Oliveira is not putting up any barriers to making the potential fight happen.
After Oliveira’s victory over Justin Gaethje at UFC 274, he called out McGregor. McGregor responded eagerly, sparking a back-and-forth exchange between the two fighters. Although McGregor has shifted his attention to a fight with Gaethje, Oliveira remains ready and willing for a potential bout against McGregor.
Oliveira’s stance is clear: he’s waiting for McGregor to confirm the time and place for the fight. Oliveira is preparing for a rematch with Makhachev for the lightweight title at UFC 294 in October. He believes that if he reclaims the title, McGregor will likely express interest in fighting with him, regardless of the weight class.
McGregor’s return is projected for early 2024, and Oliveira’s rematch with Makhachev is set for later this year. Oliveira remains open to facing McGregor, no matter the weight class, and is willing to accommodate the fight if McGregor decides to make it happen.
