The UFC is back in Texas on May 15th for a huge night of fights at the Toyota Center in Houston with their UFC 262 PPV (pay-per-view) event.

With Khabib Nurmagomedov’s lightweight title officially up for grabs, former Bellator champion Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira will get first crack at the vacant belt in the night’s main event. The newly announced co-main is a non-title (obviously), five-round fight between Nate Diaz and Leon Edwards in the welterweight division. It’s the first five-round, non-title co-main in UFC history.

As if that wasn’t enough, you have a pivotal lightweight bout between Tony Ferguson and the rising Beneil Dariush, as well as former lightweight contender Edson Barboza looking to get another win at featherweight versus Shane Burgos. Middleweight Jack Hermansson will also be another stern test for prospect Edmen Shahbazyan.

There are 15 fights on this card, and you know that every event is subject to change, but here is what UFC 262 looks like:

Michael Chandler vs. Charles Oliveira
