The time for the much-anticipated UFC 262 event has nearly arrived for fight fans. The Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, will play host to the latest pay-per-view offering from the UFC on Saturday night, as Dana White and Co. have yet another loaded fight card on tap featuring some high stakes. Michael Chandler will take on Charles Oliveira in the main event for the vacant lightweight title. The pair of unlikely contenders get the call after Khabib Nurmagomedov vacated the strap in October while arguably the top active fighter in the division, Dustin Poirier, chose the money trilogy with Conor McGregor over the championship.
There’s plenty of other fights to get excited about on this card. Rising lightweight contender Beneil Dariush is back when he takes on former interim champion and perennial contender Tony Ferguson in the co-main event. Ferguson will enter on the first two-fight losing streak of his career. Plus, action fighters Shane Burgos and Edson Barboza meet in a featured contest at featherweight bout to open things up on PPV.
