UFC legend Michael Bisping says McGregor could knock out champion Charles Oliveira.

He said on Joe Rogan’s podcast: “The reality is, Conor’s best days are long gone, probably. You can’t stay at the top forever.

“I’ll tell you this, if there’s a person that you’d put him against in the top five to beat, it would be Charles Oliveira.

“Charles is hittable and Conor can still f***ing hit. He’s fast and Charles is hittable.

“I’m just saying, there’s a potential that Conor comes back, beats Charles Oliveira and becomes champion again. 

“That is — I don’t think I can deal with the world if that happens. Oh my god.

“But it might happen. He’s still got that left hand, he’s still got power and speed.”
