A fighter has already inserted his name into the list of who should face Poirier next and that person is Charles Oliveira.
Oliveira called out Poirier through Instagram:
Só gostaria de saber o que está faltando para eu poder ter a minha oportunidade pois são sete vitórias seguidas 5 finalizações 2 nocaute E estou aqui eu nasci pra lutar para está em uma guerra dentro do octógono ------. I just want to know ok it’s missing so I can have my chance because there are seven straight wins 5 submissions 2 knockout And here I was born to fight to be in a war inside the octagon ------ @jorgepatinomacaco @diegolimacb @laercioarena @leealves.boxe @cicerocoutinho @gia.santos77 @samyr_vieira_oficial @ali14764 @nutricionistavictorsilvestre @danawhite @canalcombate @minotauromma @ufc_brasil ----------------
The Brazilian hasn’t competed since scoring a third round submission win over Kevin Lee in the main event of UFC Fight Night Brasilia this past March.
There has been no answer yet from the former interim lightweight champion, who sits at #3 in the UFC Lightweight Division, while Oliveira sits at #7.
