The UFC 280 weigh ins have concluded and the fighters are ready for a night of action. Two titles are on the line when these fighters meet on Saturday, October 22, 2022 live from the Etihad Arena on Yas Island.
The main event features Charles Oliveira against rising Russian phenom Islam Makhachev. Charles Oliveira was relieved of the Lightweight Title after missing weight at UFC 274 by just a half of a pound. He went on to submit Justin Gaethje in the very first round. Charles has made many comments that the only reason he is facing Islam Makhachev is due to Islam’s relationship with MMA superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov and that he should have to fight some top ranked talent before this match should’ve been made.
The co-main event will be for the bantamweight title as TJ Dillashaw #2 faces the champion Aljamain Sterling. Sterling is on a seven fight win streak in the division. Dillashaw has won five of his last six matchups with Henry Cejudo breaking up his winning streak.
