Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will fight for the vacant UFC lightweight championship in the main event of UFC 262 tonight at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+. UFC expects a capacity crowd of 19,000 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Oliveira enters the match with an eight-fight win streak, including seven successful finishes by submission and knockout. Oliveira holds UFC’s all-time record for most submission wins with 14. Former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler made his UFC debut in January with a first-round knockout win over Dan Hooker.
