Updated UFC 262 fixtures, the event will see the new champion in the lightweight after Khabib Nurmagomedov’s farewell.
After the legendary Khabib Nurmagomedov said goodbye to the UFC, the light world championship belt is now like a trophy that all the stalwarts crave. At UFC 262, the new owner of this prestigious belt will be revealed after the rooftop between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler.
After 8 consecutive victories at the UFC, Charles Oliveira had his first title match. Meanwhile, after making a name at Bellator, Michael Chandler had the opportunity to enter the title match after just one victory at the UFC.
To get this title match between Charles Oliveira vs Michael Chandler, the top light boxer Dustin Poirier refused to compete early for a third confrontation with Conor McGregor. Most likely, the winner of that match will challenge Charles Oliveira or Michael Chandler’s championship title in the next light belt match.
In addition to the main match between Charles Oliveira or Michael Chandler, another famous light fighter competed in UFC 262, Tony Ferguson and his big brother’s opponent will be Beneil Dariush.
UFC 262 will take place on Sunday, May 16 at Toyota Center. The event’s Main Card is scheduled to start at 9am (Vietnam time).
