Fights on Tap is a weekly roundup of all the fights booked in the UFC, Bellator and other promotions.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how excited are we for UFC 280 on Saturday? The long-awaited lightweight championship between Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev is here. Aljamain Sterling defends his bantamweight title against T.J. Dillashaw. And Petr Yan vs. Sean O’Malley has the potential to steal the entire show. But before we can get to that event, how about we look at what we have ahead of us on the upcoming schedule?

The UFC either announced or finalized nine fights this week, and the rematch of a ‘Fight of the Year’ contender is set.

In perhaps one of the biggest surprises of the year, Jiří Procházka and Glover Teixeira turned in a fight for the ages at UFC 275 this past June. With less than 30 seconds left, ‘Denisa’ submitted Teixeira by rear-naked choke to claim the UFC light heavyweight championship.

Six months later, Procházka and Teixeira will meet again at UFC 282, the upcoming pay-per-view event scheduled for Dec. 10 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
