STREAM HERE >>> Michael Chandler vs Charles Oliveira free stream online UFC 262 Lightweight Champion Full HD
Oliveira, 31, has been in the UFC since he was 20 years old, debuting in 2010. He had an inconsistent start to his UFC career, but since he moved up from featherweight in 2017, he is 9-1, including wins his last eight in a row. O
(30-8, 1 NC) has the most submission victories in UFC history (14), as well as the most performance bonuses in promotion history (10). Oliveira is also tied for the most finishes in UFC history with Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (16).
Chandler has been in the UFC for only eight months, after signing as a free agent from Bellator. But Chandler was one of the longtime stars of that promotion, winning their lightweight championship three times, and he has staked his claim as the best 155-pound fighter in the world for nearly a decade.
Chandler (22-5) has won three straight, including an emphatic, first-round TKO win over Dan Hooker in his UFC debut at UFC 257 in January. The Missouri native owns wins over former UFC champions Benson Henderson and Eddie Alvarez. Chandler, 35, owns the record for the most finishes in Bellator history (13) and is now looking to make some history in the UFC.
ESPN has Oliveira ranked No. 3 in the world at lightweight and Chandler No. 4.
In the co-main event, lightweight standout Tony Ferguson will try to snap a two-fight losing streak against Beneil Dariush. Before the recent skid, Ferguson (25-5) won 12 straight, but he was never able to challenge for the undisputed lightweight title as multiple scheduled bouts against Nurmagomedov fell through for various reasons. Dariush (20-4-1) is red hot, a winner of six straight. He is trying to storm into contention as a member of the 155-pound elite.
Also on the card, women’s flyweight contenders Katlyn Chookagian and Viviane Araujo face off, plus an all-action featherweight battle between Shane Burgos and Edson Barboza, and Antonina Shevchenko, sister of women’s flyweight champ Valentina, meets Andrea Lee in a 125-pound contender bout.
The early results — several finishes — suggest Dana White’s decision to up the performance bonuses from $50,000 to $75,000 is making an impact.
