The lightweight champion responded, asking McGregor, “What do you think about this weekend?”
“I’m ready, I’m still in town, and there’s an up & coming event. Let’s go baby,” Oliveira wrote.

Amanda Nunes releases statement following loss to Julianna Pena: ‘I undoubtedly accept the rematch’
McGregor is currently recovering from a leg injury he sustained in his third fight with Dustin Poirier in July. Oliveira defeated Poirier in the UFC 269 main event on Saturday. McGregor’s coming off back-to-back losses to Poirier and hasn’t put together consecutive wins since 2016.
Top ranked lightweight contender Justin Gaethje is expected to face Oliveira next. During the UFC 269 Post-Fight Press Conference UFC president Dana White said Gaethje was likely next to get a title shot.
“Yeah, it makes sense,” White said when Gaethje’s name was brought up during the press conference on Saturday night.
