UFC news: Charles Oliveira look forward UFC lightweight title defense in December, but not sure if it will come against Dustin Poirier

According to Super Lutas, Oliveira said that while there has been some chatter about facing Poirier, he realizes that he is more interested in other fights at the moment. With that being said, Oliveira said that he wants his next title defense to take place in December. He says he is training hard and is just waiting for whoever the UFC will match him up with.

“I’m still looking forward to my next fight, which should take place in December. There’s a lot of talk about Dustin Poirier, but he seems to be more interested in other things. I’m training and waiting for a position in the event. Whoever comes, the title will continue in Brazil,” Charles Oliveira said.

Charles Oliveira recently said that he understands why Poirier is gunning after the Diaz fight since everyone knows that is the money fight right now, with Conor McGregor out.

That being said, the Brazilian still wants to fight in December and defend his belt. Taking a look at the rankings, No. 3 ranked Beneil Dariush currently does not have an opponent lined up, so if Poirier doesn’t take the fight, then perhaps the UFC will offer the title shot to Dariush next.
