Former UFC champion Charles Oliveira is ready to fight Islam Makhachev if the money is right. Oliveira had earlier noted that he is leaning more towards a clash with Conor McGregor considering the money that the fight brings to the table.

"Everyone is talking a lot about Islam Makhachev, everyone is talking about it. Everyone knows my will; I will really like a fight against Conor. Because you know very well, it's a fight that would put a lot of money in the account,” the Brazilian noted [h/t Sportskeeda].

He further went on to add that he is indeed interested to fight Islam Makhachev if the number is right.

"But Dana, if you want this fight against Islam so badly, let's talk about money, let's talk about numbers. Don't come to talk to me, talk to my manager, he knows what will happen. I'm a fighter, I fight anywhere in the world, anywhere in this gigantic world we live in,” he noted.

Either way, Oliveira is confident that he can beat Islam Makhachev irrespective of where the fight happens.

"So, that's it guys, let's stay happy, that's the most important thing, to be happy. If it happens in Dubai, I will fight, win, and make history. If it happens in Brazil, I will fight, win, and make history. If it happens here in US, I will fight, win, and make history,” he concluded.

Oliveira is on an impressive winning streak in the UFC at the moment but was stripped of the UFC Lightweight title recently for missing weight in his match against Justin Gaethje.
