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.
No. I heard what the boss said, but my focus is if the belt in involved. Khabib or the winner of Dustin/Conor.
Let's go https://t.co/2F1NKMxfjp
