The lightweight division will be on display on the main card of UFC 262. The company’s May PPV takes place this Saturday the 15th and the final two fights of the night will involve the lightweight division. The penultimate fight of the evening is a contenders bout between No. 5 Tony Ferguson and No. 9 Beneil Dariush. The main event is a title fight between No. 3 Charles Oliveira and No. 4 Michael Chandler.

UFC 262 will get underway at 6:30 p.m. p.m. ET with three fights on the early preliminary card, airing on UFC Fight Pass. Once that wraps, the regular preliminary card is scheduled to start 8 p.m. ET. and will air on ESPN and ESPN+. There are currently four fights scheduled for that part of the show.

The main card is currently scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. ET, and will take place live on ESPN+ PPV. Even if it is delayed, that’s close enough to plan your evening accordingly. And if you only care about the main event between Oliveira and Chandler, it’s estimated that will start just after midnight ET.
