UFC travels to Houston, Texas for UFC 262 headlined by a UFC Lightweight Title Bout between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler.
With the recent retirement of former champion Khabib Nurgamedov, the UFC Lightweight title has been officially vacated, leaving a new champion to be crowned.
Former three-time Bellator Lightweight World Champion Chandler is coming off an impressive win in his first time in the Octagon, knocking out Dan Hooker in the first round at UFC 257 in January.
Oliveira is also on an incredible run, winning eight consecutive fights, seven of which have come by stoppage. The UFC’s all-time leader in submission victories will be looking to make another statement here.
In the co-main event, with the Diaz v Edwards bout now moved to UFC 263, Tony Ferguson will go head-to-head against Beneil Dariush in a Lightweight Bout.
