LAS VEGAS – UFC CEO Dana White won’t fully commit to rebooking Charles Oliveira vs. Islam Makhachev just yet.

Featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski replaced Oliveira on short notice but lost to Makhachev by first-round knockout . Prior to UFC 294, White said Oliveira could get the next title shot . After the event, he’s yet to confirm that Oliveira is next and said that will depend on when he’s cleared to compete.
