In the main event, Charles Oliveira and Islam Makhachev will battle for the UFC Lightweight Championship. The lightweight title is currently vacant after Oliveira was stripped of the honors at UFC 274 following a botched weigh-in. He managed to end up defeating Justin Gaethje that weekend and deny Gaethje the opportunity to become champion, extending his win streak to 11 and furthering his UFC records for most submissions and finishes. Oliveira’s opponent, Makhachev, has also managed an impressive win streak, now undefeated in his last ten fights dating all the way back to 2016.
In the co-main event, Aljamain Sterling and TJ Dillashaw will go toe-to-toe for a scheduled five-round title fight. Sterling is the holder of the UFC Bantamweight Championship and will look to make his second successful title defense following his split decision win against Petr Yan.
And moments before the two title fights, Yan returns to face #11 contender Sean O’Malley in a highly-anticipated bantamweight clash that has the potential to reveal O’Malley’s capabilities finally.
