Charles Oliveira not keen on Justin Gaethje combat; needs a title shot subsequent

Charles Oliveira has made it completely clear that he needs his subsequent combat to be for the UFC lightweight title and never a #1 contender’s fight against Justin Gaethje.

The Brazilian doesn’t care whether he faces Khabib Nurmagomedov or the winner of the upcoming UFC 257 headliner between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier; all he wants is a shot on the lightweight strap up next.

In response to a fan asking him whether he is fighting Justin Gaethje, ‘Do Bronx’ tweeted, saying that he’s solely focused on fighting for the title subsequent and has no interest in preventing Gaethje whatsoever. This comes after UFC president Dana White recently said that the promotion is planning on booking a matchup between Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje in the close to future.

Nonetheless, even though he’s within the find out about his boss’ plans, Charles Oliveira believes he is completed sufficient to get a crack at the title next, and that is the fight he’s looking forward to.

Charles Oliveira’s manager claims he deserves a title shot subsequent

In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Oliveira’s manager and coach Diego Lima echoed similar sentiments as his star pupil. According to him, Oliveira deserves a shot at the title due to the spectacular successful streak he has put together and the way he dominated Tony Ferguson, a former interim lightweight champion.

“He [Charles] dominated Ferguson throughout—and Ferguson is one of the better of the division, won 12 straight before losing a title fight—so I think Charles is ready and has sufficient credibility to fight for the belt,” said Lima.

Oliveira’s supervisor argued that Gaethje got utterly dominated by Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 254 and that the promotion must maintain that in mind. He further said that the logical factor to do can be to pit Charles against the winner of McGregor vs. Poirier next.

“With all due respect, Khabib ran over [Gaethje]. That must count, and lots. I believe Charles’ next fight has to be for the belt against the winner of Poirier and McGregor, not Justin Gaethje. But we know this fight between Poirier and McGregor involves a lot of issues. We know that Poirier winning means one thing, and McGregor winning changes the whole scenario.”
