The Octagon remains in Nevada for tonight’s UFC 269 event, a fourteen-bout fight card headlined by Charles Oliveira vs. Dustin Poirier.
Oliveira (31-8 MMA) captured the promotions vacant 155lbs title back in May, when he stopped Michael Chandler with a TKO in the second round. That win marked ‘Do Bronx’ ninth in a row, with eight of those respective victories coming by finish.
Meanwhile, Dustin Poirier (28-6 MMA) will enter UFC 269 sporting a three-fight winning streak. ‘The Diamond’ is coming off back-to-back TKO victories over Conor McGregor in his most recent efforts.
Saturday’s blockbuster event is co-headlined by a women’s bantamweight title fight as Julianna Pena attempts to dethrone Amanda Nunes.
As for ‘champ champ’ Amanda Nunes (21-4 MMA), the perennial GOAT of MMA last competed in March, where she successfully defended her featherweight strap with a first round submission victory over Megan Anderson. ‘The Lioness’ has not tasted defeat since September of 2014, when she was stopped by elbows and punches from Cat Zingano.
Also featured on the main card of UFC 269 is the return of ‘Suga’ Sean O’Malley who is set to meet Raulian Paiva in a bantamweight showdown.
If that wasn’t enough to get you interested, former UFC champion Cody Garbrandt will be making his flyweight debut opposite Kai Kara-France.
