Former Bellator MMA champion Michael Chandler will look to add a UFC title to his mantle when he goes to war with top contender Charles Oliveira in the UFC 262 pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which takes place this Sat. night (May 15, 2021) inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
In this latest offering of UFC 262 “Embedded,” which takes an in-depth look at the two combatants charged with carrying the show, “Iron” Mike has a close encounter with “Do Bronx” while checking into his “Lone Star State” hotel, though nothing was exchanged outside of intense stares.
Probably because the Brazilian has been saying mean things like this.
The winner of Chandler vs. Oliveira will likely move on to defend the lightweight title against the winner of the Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor trilogy in July, though it stands to reason the winner of Tony Ferguson vs. Beneil Dariush — who co-headline UFC 262 — are also in the mix.
Along with No. 2-ranked Justin Gaethje.
