UFC 262 review: Oliveira TKOs Chandler, PLUS Joshua vs Fury is ON!
There's a new champion in the UFC lightweight division, while the biggest fight in British boxing history is ready to roll.
UFC 262 delivered another packed night of talking points from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas as a new champion was crowned in the 155-pound division.
On this week’s episode of the show, we break down what it means for the UFC to have Charles Oliveira as the new lightweight champion following his dramatic second-round TKO finish of Michael Chandler in Saturday night’s main event.
We also look at Beneil Dariush’s win and post-fight callouts, and wonder if the always-respectful lightweight contender may have missed a golden opportunity to land himself a huge fight.
We also discuss the other big talking points from fight night in Houston, including Edson Barboza’s victory over Shane Burgos, Katlyn Chookagian’s latest decision victory and Andre Muniz’s shocking arm-break technical submission of Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.
There’s also some boxing chat, as we discuss the confirmation of the first Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury fight, and share some per-punch earning stats that will make your head spin, and a quick look ahead to the UFC Fight Night event this coming weekend, as the octagon returns to the UFC Apex with a pivotal bout in the bantamweight division.
It’s a packed show, and it’s all yours, right here!
