The UFC 262 main card features a lightweight title bout between Charles Oliveira (30-8-0) and Michael Chandler (22-5-0). Oliveira comes into the matchup for the vacant lightweight championship after winning eight straight fights, including back-to-back wins over Kevin Lee and Tony Ferguson. The UFC’s all-time leader in submission wins will face off against three-time Bellator lightweight champion, Chandler, who only won his UFC promotional debut at UFC 257.

In the co-main fight, former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson (26-5-0) will face off against streaking Beneil Dariush (20-4-1). Ferguson enters the fight on the first losing streak of his career, dropping two fights in 2020 after a 12-fight win streak. In the other corner, Dariush is on a six-fight win streak, with four coming by either knockout or submission.
