UFC 262 date, start time, testing, PPV schedule and Charles Oliveira vs. Michael Chandler card
With the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov, the UFC lightweight title has been left empty-handed. But that gap will be filled in UFC 262 when Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler meet to determine who will be the new king of the 155-pound division.
Oliveira is one of the UFC’s longest-running fighters, having spent a decade with the promotion, while Chandler recently signed with the UFC eight months ago. It took the Brazilian 27 fights to get his first chance at the UFC gold, the former Bellator champion needed only one fight to prove he deserved a seat at the table.
Oliveira enters the fray in an eight-fight winning streak. Recently, former UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson was finally sent to the UFC 256, finishing seven of his last eight opponents. Chandler made his promotion debut in UFC 257 and knocked out Dan Hooker in the first round.
With Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor and Justin Gaethje having a chance to win the championship, the UFC has decided to include two fresh faces in the title image and only one will remain gold at the waist.
