A total of thirty fighters will take to the scale this morning to weigh-in for this Saturday’s highly anticipated UFC 269 event.
The pay-per-view fight card is headlined by a lightweight title fight featuring reigning champion Charles Oliveira taking on challenger Dustin Poirier.
Oliveira (31-8 MMA) captured the promotions vacant 155 lb title back in May when he stopped Michael Chandler with a second round TKO. 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.
