It is that time of the week again when we begin to get excited as UFC 262 is nearly upon us, and with it, a delicious bout between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler.
The two are due to compete for the vacant Lightweight Championship in Houston, Texas, and as you can expect, there’s not going to be enough popcorn for this battle.
Previewing the main event this weekend, on one hand you have Oliveira, who has eight straight wins behind him, including his victory over Tony Ferguson at UFC 256 in December, whereas on the other you have Chandler, who will be riding high on confidence, too, having got the better of Dan Hooker in his UFC debut.
All eyes will be on who will be replacing Khabib Nurmagomedov atop the lightweight division.
That’s not all, though, folks, with Ferguson also set to take on Beneil Dariush in a bid to put an end to his two-fight losing streak.
Due to there being so much action on the card, you’d do well to keep track of it all, so here’s everything you need to know about the event ahead of time.
