The Irishman hints that he will take away the title from the Brazilian
Former UFC two-weight champion Conor McGregor congratulated newly-minted lightweight champion Charles Oliveira. The Brazilian knocked out Michael Chandler and won the title.
“Congratulations to Oliveira on becoming the 11th UFC Lightweight Champion in history. I wonder who will be the 12th…” McGregor wrote on Twitter.
Recall that McGregor will face Dustin Poirier in his next fight on July 10 at UFC 264. Perhaps the winner of this confrontation will face Oliveira in the future.
