UFC 262 live stream: How to watch Michael Chandler vs Charles Oliveira online and on TV tonight

Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira go head-to-head in the main event of UFC 262 this evening, with the vacant lightweight title up for grabs following former champion Khabib Nurmagomedov’s recent retirement.

The Russian ended his MMA career with an undefeated record of 29-0, exiting the sport with a submission win against interim titleholder Justin Gaethje in October.

Now, the gold is on the line as Oliveira (30-8) seeks to extend his eight-fight winning run as he takes on Chandler (22-5), a former three-time Bellator lightweight champion who made his UFC debut in January.

The American defeated Dan Hooker via first-round TKO in the pair’s co-main event meeting at UFC 257, moments before Dustin Poirier knocked out Conor McGregor.

With Poirier and McGregor scheduled for a trilogy contest in July, Chandler and Oliveira have been granted a crack at the 155lbs division’s vacant belt.
