A potential fight between former champion Conor McGregor and reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira has been in the discussions for quite some time now. Many names in the MMA community have given their thoughts on the matchup as well and the latest name to talk about the fight is Chael Sonnen.

The former UFC Star believes that McGregor can outclass Oliveira if the two fight in the UFC.

“If there’s anybody that Conor is likely to beat to become the world champion, it is the sitting champion right now. Charles Oliveira, Conor McGregor is a fascinating matchup. It is very problematic for Oliveira. Conor McGregor is as good of a striker as this sport has ever seen. Oliveira is a very dynamic striker who showed some real wrestling prowess in a couple of contests but in other contests didn’t,” he said (h/t MMA Junkie).

He further went on to add that McGregor can handle the Brazilian on the ground and on his feet.

“Conor can handle himself on the ground. Conor can take care of himself on the feet. The in-between has been a problem with very high-level guys. So now you start to have a question of, is Oliveira a really high-level guy? Is he that high enough of a level guy? I don’t have the answers to these questions. I’m just sharing for you; however, this goes, the fans are going to get something very special,” Sonnen added.
