For Chael Sonnen, the UFC should manage the Charles Oliveira vs Conor McGregor combat and put Justin Gaethje “on hold” for the end result.
Everyone says that Justin Gaethje will be next to fight Charles Oliveira because the latter managed to beat Dustin Poirier at UFC 269, retaining his light-weight title. And this concept additionally appears to be that of the UFC which has virtually confirmed the info by means of the voice of its president, Dana White.
But Charles Oliveira desires another person. He desires… Conor McGregor as he stated himself final week, although Conor McGregor is at present injured and on a two-game shedding streak. But it's a very profitable possibility for Oliveira and this side should not be uncared for.
For Chael Sonnen, this is what the UFC should do (through bjpenn):
” Daniel Cormier had a discussion with Dana White and this topic was brought up. Dana absolutely did not commit to saying ‘Yes, this is the direction we are going to take and we will do this fight. [Oliveira vs McGregor]'. But Dana said something on behalf of Conor McGregor: ‘Anyone who thinks Conor shouldn't be able to fight Oliveira is wrong. Conor, from the start, was always ready to fight anyone, whenever we needed him. So if Conor comes and asks for a fight, I'll listen to him ”. End of the story.”
Then Sonnen added:
” There's a story going around that Conor McGregor is going to come straight back for a title shot against Charles Oliveira. And there is a guy who has his say in it, it's Charles Oliveira. Charles said: ‘Justin Gaethje, you did everything right and I don't want to disrespect you, but step aside, I'm going to have my special night.' Okay, well, we have to listen to the world champion. I don't mean to disrespect Justin Gaethje but put him on hold. Oliveira is doing what's best for him and he's been very clear that he will rule out aspirant number one, whoever he is. It turns out it's Justin Gaethje. But whoever it is, he'll put it aside if it means a night out against Conor McGregor.”
