We’re just a couple of days away from the UFC 269: “Oliveira vs. Poirier” pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for this Sat. night (Dec. 11, 2021) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Headlining the card will be the lightweight title fight between reigning champion Charles Oliveira and former interim titleholder Dustin Poirier. In the UFC 269 co-main event, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes puts her 135-pound strap up for grabs against TUF 18 champion Julianna Pena.
Check out their “Countdown to UFC 269” video embedded above.
The winner of Oliveira vs. Poirier is expected to move on to face lightweight bruiser Justin Gaethje at some point in early 2022. Things aren’t so clear at women’s bantamweight since Nunes has pretty much cleaned out the division, unless Pena pulls off the massive upset and resets the 135-pound rankings. Unlikely, but we can never rule anything out in this crazy sport, which is part of what makes MMA so appealing.
