UFC is back for its May PPV with UFC 262 betting getting underway Saturday evening from the Toyota Center in Houston. The early preliminary card gets underway at 6:30 p.m. ET and will air on UFC Fight Pass. That is followed by the four-fight preliminary card at XXX 8 p.m. on ESPN & ESPN+.
The main card for the event is scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. and will be available for purchase through ESPN+ PPV. The card is headlined by Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler fighting for the vacant lightweight championship. The title was vacated in March 2021 after Khabib Nurmagomedov retired the previous October.
The title fight is estimated to get going at just after midnight, according to UFC projections. The main card starts at 10 p.m., so it will depend somewhat on how long the first four fights go, and then how long ring entrances with pomp and circumstance is for the title fights. But just after midnight on the east coast is probably a safe bet.
