So, Justin Gaethje Vs. Charles Oliveira would be a welcome booking. One that will showcase how motivated the Highlight is after suffering a setback against Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 254, and also whether Charles Oliveria can repeat the convincing display, against which even Tony Ferguson struggled.
With Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier, Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira, Tony Ferguson, Michael Chandler, etc. seeking a title run, that too when there is no concrete word regarding the future of (yet to be stripped) current Lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, it is anybody’s guess who will claim the ultimate thrown.
Buckle up, 2021 is going to be an exhilarating ride for the 155-pound section.
