UFC returns for its second full-attendance pay-per-view in three weeks this Saturday night in Houston, as UFC 262 comes to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

The main event is a battle for the lightweight championship vacated by Khabib Nurmagomedov between No. 3 Charles Oliveira and No. 4 Michael Chandler. Oliveira has an overall record of 30-8, but has won eight consecutive fights since June of 2018. His unanimous decision victory over Tony Ferguson in December of last year earned him this shot at the belt.

Chandler is 22-5, and has mostly competed in Bellator before making the jump to UFC by knocking out Dan Hooker in the first round in January. He has 17 career stoppages, and has won six of his last seven bouts.

The co-main event sees the aforementioned Ferguson, ranked No. 5 at lightweight looking to get back on the right track against No. 9 Beneil Dariush. Ferguson hasn’t looked like the up-and-coming star that had won 12 consecutive bouts of late, as he lost to both Oliveira and Justin Gaethje in his only two fights of 2020.

Dariush has won six fights in a row, four via stoppage, and took home a split decision over Diego Ferreira in February to get here.
