UFC 280 Fight Card Overview —

It’s nearly time for the latest PPV venture for UFC, and the return to Fight Island. The promotion is heading back to Abu Dhabi on Oct. 22 with a loaded fight card sure to get fans excited for the late afternoon festivities. The event is headlined by a vacant lightweight title fight between former champion Charles Oliveira and rising contender Islam Makhachev. Oliviera is on an incredible run of destruction with 11 wins in a row dating back to 2018. He also never lost the title in the cage as he was stripped for missing weight ahead of his clash with Justin Gaethje in May.

In addition to the wild main event, the co-feature also sees a title on the line in a matchup sure to grab fans’ eyes. Bantamweight king Aljamain Sterling is set to take on former titleholder TJ Dillashaw. It will be Sterling’s second defense of the 135-pound title and first since his two-fight series with Petr Yan. Dillashaw is back after undergoing knee surgery in 2021 and serving a two-year USADA suspension for PEDs that cost him the world title. In addition, Bantamweight kingpin, Aljamain Sterling, looks for his second title defense against T.J. Dillashaw, while a Bantamweight bout pits Sean O’Malley opposite Petr Yan and Beneil Dariush and Mateusz Gamrot hook ‘em up in what could be a Lightweight final eliminator.
