Charles Oliveira wants McGregor or Felder after UFC Sao Paulo win, welcomes Khabib fight

UFC lightweight contender Charles Oliveira completed a six-fight win streak on Saturday. Known for his submission prowess, “Do Bronx” defeated Jared Gordon via first-round knockout, earning him an extra $50,000 for Performance of the Night.

Riding on a wave of confidence after UFC Sao Paulo, the 30-year-old UFC veteran now feels he deserves elite competition. During his Octagon interview with Michael Bisping, he named Conor McGregor and Paul Felder to be either one of his next opponents.

During the post-fight presser, he explained the reason behind the callout.

“I think it’s time for me to start talking more,” Oliveira told reporters.
