Conor McGregor Believes He Deserves Next Title Shot vs. Charles Oliveira
Conor McGregor Wants Title Shot Vs. Charles Oliveira 'So, When's Our Fight?'

Conor McGregor doesn't believe there's any doubt about who should fight UFC champ Charles Oliveira for the title next -- despite losing his last 2 -- 'cause it's obviously him!
"So what date am I fighting Oliveira," McGregor tweeted Monday morning.
McGregor's tweet comes just days after 32-year-old Oliveira picked up the 32nd victory of his great MMA career, beating Dustin Poirier by 3rd-round submission.
Oliveira -- though champ -- was a slight underdog in the fight.
Of course, it's nearly impossible to objectively say McGregor -- a former 2 weight class UFC champ -- deserves a title shot when he returns to the Octagon.
Not only will Conor -- currently the #9 ranked lightweight -- be coming off a devastating injury (broken leg) ... but he lost his last 2 fights to the guy who just lost to Oliveira (and 3 of his last 4 overall).
The Notorious wasn't done Tweeting.
He also referenced his epic win over Brazilian Jose Aldo ... posting a photo of the Irish flag and the Brazilian flag next to the number 2.
Remember, Conor starched the UFC superstar with a perfectly placed punch in only 13 seconds during their December 2015 fight.
Oliveria is a Brazilian star ... hence Ireland vs. Brazil 2.

Charles has not yet responded to Conor ... who also posed for a photo with his old UFC belt.
As for who he will fight next ... it'll likely be #2 ranked lightweight Justin Gaethje. But, Conor's still the biggest star in the sport ... and likely only a good win away from another title. shot.
