UFC 262 reside updates, highlights, outcomes for Charles Oliveira vs Michael Chandler

Khabib Nurmagomedov’s recent resignation released the UFC lightweight title. That position will be filled on Saturday night at UFC 262 when Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler meet at the Toyota Center in Houston to determine the new king of the 155-pound division.

Oliveira is one of the longest-serving UFC fighters, the Brazilian having spent over a decade promoting. Chandler only signed with the UFC eight months ago. It took Oliveira 27 fights for Oliveira to get his first chance at UFC Gold, while Chandler, the former Bellator Champion, took just one fight to prove himself worthy of a seat at the table.

Oliveira enters the fray with a winning streak of eight fights. He recently dispatched former UFC interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson to dominate UFC 256. He finished seven of the last eight opponents in the distance. Chandler made his commercial debut on UFC 257, knocking out Dan Hooker in the first round.

After Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor and Justin Gaethje all had their chance at the championship, the UFC decided that two fresh faces would come into the cover picture, one of which would leave with gold around its waist on Saturday.

Sporting News will provide live updates of the light championship match and the main map.

UFC 262 Live Updates, Highlights from Oliveira vs. Chandler

Katlyn Chookagian unanimously insults Viviane Araujo

11:09 pm: Interesting three laps as each lap was completely different. Araujo started strong in the first and had an advantage with her stroke and started the second strong with a takedown and a couple of submission attempts. But Chookagian found her way back to her feet and took advantage of an exhausted Araujo with a sharp blow. The third was all Chookagian when she hit and kicked all over her. Somehow a judge gave Chookagian every three rounds. The right woman won, but we got some questionable results tonight.

10:44 p.m .: Next up is a women’s flyweight bout between Viviane Araujo and Katlyn Chookagian. Araujo wants to climb the ladder while Chookagian tries to fight back against anyone who wants to fight for the title.

Edson Barboza finished Shane Burgos in the third round

10:33 pm: It turns out we didn’t need the judges after all. Edson Barboza snuck into a right hand that seemed to take Burgos well. But suddenly, after about 5 seconds, Burgos’ body short-circuited to achieve an extraordinary result for an extraordinary fight. Barboza desperately needed to win tonight and could still be an important featherweight player.

10:30 p.m .: After two laps, Barboza and Burgos give us everything we wanted and more. Barboza was extremely sharp with kicks and combos, but Burgos is like a tank pushing further forward and firing heavy shots. Burgos are likely to go to the finals but anything can happen with the way they threw strikes.

10:10 pm: We live with a feather-light fall between the human kicking highlight role Edson Barboza and Shane Burgos in a fight that few expect less than fireworks.

9:41 pm: We’re in the final preliminary round before UFC 262 pay-per-view when Jacare Souza takes on Andre Muniz. Muniz suggested that he be a better grappler than the world class Jacare. It seemed to upset Souza, but surprisingly Muniz managed to catch an arm and break Jacare’s arm with an assist in the first round. Unbelievable. In a career of nearly 18 years, Souza had never been submitted. Muniz, however, threw himself on Jacare’s back in the middle of the first round and rolled into an arm bar that grotesquely broke the arm and forced submission.

Five out of seven preliminary fights ended within the distance. Is that a sign of the future?
