Conor McGregor Believes He Deserves Next Title Shot vs. Charles Oliveira

Conor McGregor doesn’t believe there’s any doubt about who should fight UFC champ Charles Oliveira for the title next — despite losing his last 2 — ’cause it’s obviously him!

“So what date am I fighting Oliveira,” McGregor tweeted Monday morning.

McGregor’s tweet comes just days after 32-year-old Oliveira picked up the 32nd victory of his great MMA career, beating Dustin Poirier by 3rd-round submission.

Oliveira — though champ — was a slight underdog in the fight.

Of course, it’s nearly impossible to objectively say McGregor — a former 2 weight class UFC champ — deserves a title shot when he returns to the Octagon.

Not only will Conor — currently the #9 ranked lightweight — be coming off a devastating injury (broken leg) … but he lost his last 2 fights to the guy who just lost to Oliveira (and 3 of his last 4 overall).

The Notorious wasn’t done Tweeting.

He also referenced his epic win over Brazilian Jose Aldo … posting a photo of the Irish flag and the Brazilian flag next to the number 2.

Remember, Conor starched the UFC superstar with a perfectly placed punch in only 13 seconds during their December 2015 fight.

Oliveria is a Brazilian star … hence Ireland vs. Brazil 2.

Charles has not yet responded to Conor … who also posed for a photo with his old UFC belt.

As for who he will fight next … it’ll likely be #2 ranked lightweight Justin Gaethje. But, Conor’s still the biggest star in the sport … and likely only a good win away from another title. shot.
