We are just hours away from having a new UFC lightweight champion crowned later tonight (Sat., May 15, 2021) at UFC 262 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Tex., as former Bellator MMA champion Michael Chandler tries to capitalize on a main event bid opposite red-hot contender Charles Oliveira.
Ahead of tonight’s festivities the promotion has released the latest and greatest episode of UFC 262 “Embedded,” which can be seen in the above video player. This time around the action focuses on final weight cuts, a surprise visit from UFC legend Chuck Liddell, and final faceoffs at the ceremonial weight ins.
From the official YouTube description:
Lightweights hit their targets: Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler, plus Beneil Dariush and Tony Ferguson. Chandler gets a boost from his dad; Oliveira from Jacare Souza. Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell visits backstage at the ceremonial weigh-in.
Fight fans will see a new UFC lightweight champion one way or another later tonight at UFC 262. It will either be Oliveira cashing in on a 11-year UFC career or Chandler coming in at the right time and stealing the show.
