UFC 262: Charles Oliveira vs. Michael Chandler for vacant lightweight title

Charles Oliveira and former Bellator champion Michael Chandler will battle for the crown Khabib Nurmagomedov recently vacated at UFC 262 in May.

Oliveira (30-8-0, 1NC), 31, is on an eight-fight win streak, including a convincing unanimous decision win over Tony Ferguson at UFC 256 last December. He is simply on fire right now.

Meanwhile, Chandler (22-5-0), 34, took out Dan Hooker in impressive fashion in his debut at UFC 257 in January. He is on a three-fight win streak and with some good fortune has secured a title fight after only one octagon bout.
