He just got the UFC lightweight world championship and Charles Oliveira is already thinking of being a double champion. At the moment it is too early to know if the company will allow him to return to featherweight for a title shot but he has put the idea on the table.
Charles Oliviera wants to be double champion
At the press conference after UFC 262, the new champion said:
“My coaches and I talk a lot about this and I still feel like a featherweight. If Dana White gave me the opportunity to go back down I would accept it«.
The UFC always welcomes, or at least usually does, to super fights between champions so maybe soon there will be a fight Charles Oliveira (lightweight champion) against Álex Volkanovski (featherweight champion). Although it remains to be seen if the 145-pound monarch defends the title successfully against Brian Ortega.
