Conor McGregor is one of those people. He was the former UFC featherweight champion and lightweight double champion.
Oliveira said to Sherdog, "May would make a great date."
Conor challenged me to ask a date and tweeted Ireland vs. Brazil. He, as well as me and the rest of the world, want to see this fight. Let's make this happen. I will be waiting for him in May. It could be at welterweight, light, or middleweight with my title on line. You just need to choose, and I'll be there.
Many people believe Gaethje should be competing for the next championship. Oliveira however believes McGregor has a strong case.
McGregor and Gaethje lost to Poirier. The Irish fighter is currently recovering from a fractured leg sustained in the defeat against Poirier in July.
"Gaethje was knockedout by Poirier who I just submitted. Oliveira stated that Chandler almost knocked him out, but that he was defeated via TKO.
"If they decide that I should fight Gaethje, I'll also be available."
