McGregor tweeted the following about this challenge:
“I’d have a nice knock off this guy, no doubt about it. A firework spectacle. I like the 170 shout also. Tipped him over.
I’m definitely game to fight this guy at some stage in my career. I see it happening after tonight. Congrats on a solid win Michael and another barnstormer.”
In the main event of the PPV, Charles Oliveira made Justin Gaethje tap out.
Charles, who was forced to vacate the UFC Lightweight Title because he missed the weight for this fight by 0.5 lbs, is now the #1 Contender and his next fight will be for the Title that he never lost.
He also called out McGregor for a fight over the 155 lbs Title.
McGregor tweeted the following about Charles’ Lightweight Championship challenge:
“I’m not sure I wish to cut the weight. I am really enjoying being built like a refrigerator. I feel I want to fight at this size just to watch it back lol.
But I’d love to fight the Brazilian, 100%! I love Brazil and I’m unbeaten against Brazil. All KO’s. I’ve some thinking to do.”
