What Is Next For Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor, Nate Diaz and Charles Oliviera?
The story of the UFC lightweight division has gotten more interesting after Charles Oliviera retained his title with a submission win over Dustin Poirier.
After “Do Bronx” defended his lightweight crown for the first time in his decade-long UFC career, Conor McGregor was quick to call him out on Twitter. Oliviera responded right away that he would be down for the fight any day.
He clarified in the post-match interview why he is willing to share the ring with the Notorious.
“If I had the chance [in the past] to fight for the belt or fight Conor, everybody knows I’d fight for the belt,” Oliveira said.
“That already happened, I’m the champion now. The champion has a name and his name is Charles Oliveira, Charles ‘do Bronx.’ If I had the chance to fight Conor for money today, I would. The belt is mine and continues to be mine. We’ll continue building our legacy and making history.”
As for Poirier, the Diamond has admitted that he is heartbroken to have been submitted for the second time in a title fight after building his way up as a challenger.
However, when Nate Diaz teased him on Twitter, Poirier affirmed his availability in a series of tweets.
