It all goes down tomorrow night (Sat., May 15, 2021) at UFC 262 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Tex., as Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler collide in the main event for the vacant UFC lightweight title.
On paper this is an awesome matchup to determine the next 155-pound champion. Obviously some would say Chandler hasn’t earned his shot having defeated Dan Hooker in his Octagon debut back at UFC 257, but the guy has been one of the best lightweights in the world over the past 10 years. There’s a reason he was able to steamroll “Hangman” and earn this matchup with “Do Bronx.” Chandler is the real deal.
Oliveira, who is coming off a dominant decision win over Tony Ferguson back at UFC 256 in Dec. 2020, is looking to lock down his ninth-straight win inside of the Octagon. The Brazilian veteran has been competing in UFC for over a decade and is finally on the cusp of his first ever title shot. There’s no doubt fight fans will see the most dangerous Oliveira to date when he meets Chandler this weekend at UFC 262.
In preparation for UFC 262, the promotion has released the latest and greatest episodes of UFC 262 “Embedded.” Both episodes focus on final weight cuts and last-minute preparation as Oliveira and Chandler enter the biggest fight of their respective careers. The “Embedded” team also followed co-main event participants, Tony Ferguson and Beneil Dariush, as they gear up for a crucial 155-pound clash.
