Charles Oliveira desires to fight Conor McGregor: Charles Oliveira came up with a blunt statement. In his recent interview with ESPN MMA, he detailed why he is looking for a fight with Conor McGregor and is not interested d in Islam.

“It would be a very good fight for me,” he told ESPN MMA. “It would put a lot of money in my pocket, and [at this moment] that’s the most important thing. And it would also be really good for my legacy, for me to have in my story. Regardless, if he’s coming from defeat or not, he’s a guy who’s made history, so I think it would be great, but it’s not just up to me. If it were up to me, this fight would already be happening.”

Makhachev is 10-1 in the UFC’s lightweight division and has a 10-fight winning streak. In a catchweight bout this year, he TKO’d Bobby Green. He has wins over notable names of the divisions such as Dan Hooker, Thiago Moises, and Drew Dober last year.

Oliveira said he’s not convinced that Makhachev has done enough to earn a title shot.

“I’ve never ran from a fight and the lightweight champion is called Charles Oliveira. Is Islam a very tough guy? Yep. Did he fight big names? No. He’s on a big streak, but who did he fight?”

However, The Eagle has been vouching and campaigning to earn a title shot for Islam.

‘The Notorious’ was the highest-paid UFC fighter and created history by becoming a double division champion. Unfortunately, he suffered a brutal leg injury in UFC 264 against Dustin Poirier in the first round, fracturing his left fibula and tibia.

McGregor had been out of the fight game for a long time, and he announced his return with a spectacular transformation and training videos.

The Irishman’s delayed return has devastated the hearts of his fans. In a recent interview, the Champ declared his intention to make history by becoming a three-division champion.

He eventually called out the welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman. “The Nigerian Nightmare” was the best pound-to-pound fighter and was open to the call out.

While McGregor’s comeback was anticipated as one of the historic comebacks in UFC history, his potential opponents were lined up as Nate Diaz, .

The expectations are getting wider as ‘Mystic Macs’ return in more ways, so the rival list might also get longer.
