Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos thinks Conor McGregor is ducking Charles Oliveira because he thinks the former UFC two-division champion wants no part of the matchup. He claims McGregor knows Oliveira is a “bad fight” for him.
McGregor is currently injured as he broke his leg in the first round of his trilogy bout with Dustin Poirier at UFC 264.
Conor McGregor avoiding this fight?
“Did you see that not long ago he (Charles Oliveira) challenged (Conor) McGregor?” Junior dos Santos said on the Podpah podcast (h/t The Mirror). “And McGregor is kind of ducking. Of course, we know, just ducking. It’s obvious he won’t want to, it’s a bad fight for him.”
Charles will fight Islam Makhachev for the vacant 155-pound championship at UFC 280
