He is still recovering from the serious injury that occurred in his third fight against Dustin Poirier, but his name remains in the limelight. ‘The Notorious’ still has a long way to go until its reappearance, but brides are not lacking. Even the lightweight champion himself has taken an interest in him.

Charles Oliviera, commented to Sherdog.com: “May would be a wonderful date. Conor challenged me and asked for a date. Not only him, everyone would like to see that fight. Let’s make it happen. Expect him for May “.

Yes, now Conor weighs 16 kg more than in the weigh-in of his last fight. “190 pounds (86 kg) of pure granite,” said the Irishman. ‘Do Bronx’, will be willing to go against McGregor in another weight and therefore without a title at stake: “It can happen at wlter, middleweight, with my title at stake or not. If he decides, we will be ready, “said Oliveira, who has accumulated 10 consecutive victories.

That ‘The Notorious’ has increased in size, it is more than evident, but with what the former champion in two divisions is especially happy is with the operation that repaired his tibia, as he expressed a few months ago: “I got exactly what I needed, which was a titanium pimple. Now I have titanium from knee to ankle and the doctor said it is unbreakable. “
