Dana White Reacts To Islam Makhachev’s Win And Other Topics At UFC 294 Presser

White believes that Makhachev’s next fight will have to be against Charles Oliveira. That was the fight that was originally booked to headline UFC 294 and it’s the fight to make. With that being said the UFC boss sees a Justin Gaethje and Dustin Poirier as great fights to make for Makhachev.

If Makhachev can run the gauntlet and Oliveira, Gaethje, Poirier and others, White sees a path to true greatness for the current lightweight champion.
