What time is UFC 262 today? PPV schedule, main card start time for Oliveira vs Chandler
Khabib Nurmagomedov’s retirement from the UFC has left a huge void in the UFC lightweight division – a void that Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will seek to fill on Saturday.
The division’s No. 3 and 4-seeded fighters, respectively, will face off at the Toyota Center in Houston to become the third non-interim lightweight champion since Conor McGregor took him from Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in 2016.
Oliveira (30-8-1, eight KOs) and Chandler (22-5, 10 KOs) score multiple wins, setting up a new fight for the lightweight division. Will Oliveira win the belt 11 years after the first fight under the UFC banner? Or will Chandler, who is fighting for only the second time in the UFC since his transfer from Bellator, take it?
We can’t wait to find out. With that, here’s everything you need to know to watch UFC 262, including the scheduled start time for the main event.
