Charles Oliveira is currently reigning on top of the UFC Lightweight division. The Brazilian, however, has no plans to settle down at Lightweight. Speaking to  MMA Fighting’s Portuguese-language podcast Trocação Franca, Oliveira revealed that he is open to moving weight classes.

“I really thought I couldn’t drop to 145 anymore. but this last weight cut, I was really [close to] 155 before the fight with this work we’ve been doing, with lots of water in the body, and we believe we could easily make 145,” Oliveira noted.

He further went on to add that he could even move up to Welterweight for a title fight if the opportunity arrives.

“If I had the opportunity to go straight for the 145 belt, I’d move down to fight. Also, if I had the opportunity to go straight for the 170 belt, I’d also move up to fight, but I believe it’s more viable to [drop down] to 145 instead of going to 170 at this moment. Becoming a two-division champion, a Brazilian man, would be awesome,” Oliveira added.

The Featherweight division is currently being ruled by Alexander Volkanovski when Kamaru Usman is reigning as the Welterweight champion. Both the champions are undefeated in the UFC and it would be interesting to see what happens if Oliveira decides to move weight classes?
