UFC 262

For the first time in three years, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will crown a new Lightweight champion thanks to the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov when No. 3-ranked contender Charles Oliveira locks horns with No. 4-seeded Michael Chandler for the vacant 155-pound belt. In UFC 262's pay-per-view (PPV) main event, which will take place inside Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, on May 15, 2021, former UFC interim Lightweight champion (and No. 5-ranked contender), Tony Ferguson, takes on the red-hot Beneil Dariush (No. 9) in another pivotal 155-pound showdown. Remember that the highly-anticipated Welterweight scrap between Nate Diaz and No. 3-ranked contender, Leon Edwards, was moved to UFC 263 next month. Nevertheless, we'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 262 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "The Lonestar State" right here before, during and well after the ESPN+-streamed PPV live show concludes.
