Conor McGregor's teammate has dropped a big hint over the UFC's star comeback fight and if it happens, it'll be HUGE.
McGregor is eyeing a summer return as he recovers from his broken leg suffered in his defeat to Dustin Poirier in July.
And if his training partner is anything to go by, the 'Notorious' will jump straight into a mega showdown.
Peter Queally claims the Irish star is set to face UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira next.
The Brazilian recently defended his 155lbs title against Poirier and is lining up his next opponent.
It appears McGregor will get the call despite being on a two-fight losing skid.
Queally told the Mirror: "It sounds like the belt might happen next to be honest.
"Normally in this sport, when you've got two fighters that want the same thing, that's what happens.
"So, Charles wants this fight with Conor, Conor wants this fight with Charles and normally that's what happens especially if there's money to be made, which there is."

Oliveira seems down to fight McGregor, but the potential championship clash won't go down well with No.1 contender Justin Gaethje.
'The Highlight' beat Michael Chandler in a 'Fight of the Year' contender and appeared to have earned his shot at UFC gold.
Speaking after his big win, he said he'd 'burn it all down' if he gets passed up for McGregor.
"I'll burn it all down," he exclaimed. "He [McGregor] is so irrelevant. He hasn't won a fight since 2016 in the lightweight division.
"I'm ranked No.1. I saw they updated the rankings. I'm No.1 now. That feels pretty good... My whole life I've been working towards this [title shot]. That's what's next.
"If not... I'll show up and start throwing dollies everywhere. I don't know what the answer is."
