UFC 262: Charles Oliveira vs. Michael Chandler official weigh-in results

Either Charles Oliveira or Michael Chandler will be able to call themselves the new undisputed UFC lightweight champion when their UFC 262 main event is all wrapped up at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.

But before Oliveira and Chandler can make their way to the Octagon, they and the rest of the UFC 262 fighters must first get through the official weigh-ins.

Oliveira enters this fight on an eight-fight win streak and with nine wins in the 10 fights he’s had so far since moving to 155. Oliveira, who currently holds the UFC record for most submission victories and Performance of the Night bonuses, earned this title shot with a one-sided beatdown of Tony Ferguson at UFC 256.

Chandler is a former three-time Bellator lightweight champion, previously being one of the faces of that promotion. Chandler has scored victories over Eddie Alvarez, Patricky “Pitbull” Freire and Benson Henderson. Signing with the UFC in late 2020, Chandler made his UFC debut at UFC 257, scoring a first-round finish of Dan Hooker.
