Conor McGregor might have thrown his hat in the ring for another title challenge after his congratulatory tweet for Charles Oliveira:
Oliveira secured the UFC lightweight title Saturday night at UFC 262 with a knockout victory over Michael Chandler:
The bout was for the vacant title left open after Khabib Nurmagomedov retired as the champion. Oliveira was considered by UFC as the No. 3 contender in the class while Chandler was fourth.
McGregor is just No. 6 in the class after a January loss to Dustin Poirier. The good news is he has a chance to climb back up the rankings with another battle against Poirier in July at UFC 264; the third all-time battle between the two.
A win for the Irish superstar could put him right back on the map as a top contender while potentially setting him up for a title shot against Oliveira.
UFC president Dana White said Saturday he hadn't yet thought about what's next for the latest champion, per Marc Raimondi of ESPN.
