Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will crown a new lightweight champion in the UFC 262 pay-per-view (PPV) main event between Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler, scheduled for TONIGHT (Sat., May 15, 2021) inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.
Oliveira (30-8, 1 NC) is the winner of eight straight with seven violent finishes and has been competing for UFC for over a decade, earning his crack at the vacant crown by dominating Tony Ferguson at UFC 256 last December.
Chandler (22-5) crossed over from the ranks of Bellator MMA and immediately put the division on notice with his first-round destruction of veteran contender Dan Hooker as part of the UFC 257 fight card back in January.
