UFC 269, Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier


Charles Oliveira will defend his lightweight championship against Dustin Poirier at the main event of UFC 269 on Saturday in Las Vegas.

This fight is just one of two title fights on the map at T-Mobile Arena. In the main co-event, two-division champion Amanda Nunes will defend her bantamweight belt against Julianna Pena.

Oliveira (31-8, 1 NC) became champion in May with a second round knockout of Michael Chandler in a fight for a vacant belt following the retirement of former undefeated champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. Oliveira, who has won nine fights in a row, is No.6 in the ESPN men’s pound-for-pound chart and No.2 in the top 10 lightweight.

Poirier (28-6, 1 NC) unsuccessfully challenged Nurmagomedov for the belt in 2019, and since then has won three straight, most recently a pair of Conor McGregor knockouts earlier this year. It is ESPN’s # 1,155 pounds and # 5 pound-for-pound.

Nunes (21-4) has won 12 fights in a row, including seven bantamweight and featherweight title defenses. She is No. 1 on the ESPN Women’s Pound for Pound Chart.

Pena (10-4), who has won two of his last three games, is ranked third at 135 pounds by ESPN.

The five-fight PPV card will begin at 10 p.m. ET, and the action will begin at 6 p.m. ET with early prelims on ESPN +, followed by prelims at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and ESPN +.
