Bloody Elbow presents its fight night and post-fight coverage for UFC 262, which goes down on Saturday, May 15th at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. In the main event, Charles Oliveira and former Bellator champion Michael Chandler fight for the vacant lightweight championship. It’s the first lightweight title bout since Khabib Nurmagomedov’s retirement and the winner is expected to face the winner of Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 3.
The co-main event is a three-round matchup between former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson and rising contender Beneil Dariush. Previously, a five-round non-title bout between Nate Diaz and Leon Edwards was supposed to be the co-main, but that has been pushed back to UFC 263 in June.
