Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Etihad Arena In Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Sat., Oct. 22, 2022, featuring a highly anticipated match up for the vacant 155-pound title between former division kingpin, Charles Oliveira, against Islam Makhachev, who enter “Fight Island” with a combined 21-fight unbeaten run. In UFC 280’s ESPN+-streamed pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, Bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling defends his title against former two-time division roost-ruler, T.J. Dillashaw. Last, and certainly not least, former 135-pound champion, Petr Yan, will lock horns with superstar in the making, “Sugar” Sean O’Malley.

“This thing is trending off the charts already,” White told Barstool Sports. “It actually started on Saturday. My analytics guy hit me up and said, ‘we are crushing this event’ on pre-buys on Saturday, how about that? You couldn’t ask for a better main event. Two of the baddest dudes in the world in that weight class, in their prime, facing off for the title.”

The winner of Oliveira vs. Makhachev is likely to defend the lightweight title against featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, who cleaned out the 145-pound weight class and flew to Abu Dhabi to be on standby for the main event. Primarily because Oliveira has a history of weight-cutting struggles, which led to the loss of his title last May.
