“I left Las Vegas asking for another fight soon. I want to fight as soon as possible. I had two or three stitches above my eye, but they have now come out. I don't have any injuries. I'm ready to fight as soon as the UFC calls me. Of course I have nothing to prove to anyone and everyone knows my history in the UFC, so it doesn't make sense to accept fights with the eighth or tenth in the division. I want whoever is in front of me. That’s why I need to wait, think and analyze the next step,” he declared.

One of the options contemplated by Charles after the UFC 300 would be a revenge against Justin gaethje, which was defeated by Max Holloway on the same night. The American, however, recently announced plans to take some time off before returning to the Octagon. Do Bronx respects his rival's decision, but sees no point in waiting for him.

“He (Gaethje) is not wrong. You don't have to fight to show up for anyone. You have to fight when you are well. It's not my idea to stay away for a while, I want to fight before then, so waiting for Gaethje doesn't fit with what I'm planning. There's a lot going on. Conor McGregor, Michael chandler, Dustin poirier, Islam makhachev, so I don’t want to rush things,” he said.

In addition to so many lightweight options, Charles of the Bronx does not close the door on a possible one-off category move up to welterweight (up to 77,1 kg).

PUBLICITY:

"Why not? Why not take a fight that will lead to money and history and legacy? We have to think and talk to the organization. Why not move up a category and have a super fight? A fight that makes sense and makes us money? Why not?”, he concluded.
