UFC 269: Oliveira vs Poirier Main Event Preview

Poirier (28-6-0, 1 NC) is the top contender in the lightweight division, and for good reason. A marquee name at both UFC Fight Night and pay-per-view events alike, the southpaw delivers, as most recently shown in his last eight appearances, all of which were main events. In that stretch, Poirier is 7-1, with the only loss coming against Nurmagomedov in a bout that earned “Fight of the Night” honors. Poirier has most recently been connected with former division champion Conor McGregor, his opponent in his last two fights. Poirier won both by TKO, with a doctor’s stoppage designation on the latter.

Though the favorite, Poirier is the challenger on Saturday night as he takes his shot at the title belt held by Oliveira (31-8-0, 1 NC). The champion from Brazil has won nine consecutive fights, including his belt in his most recent bout against Michael Chandler in May. It is the first time in his 11-year UFC career that Oliveira has been a champion. Saturday night will be his first-ever attempt at a title defense.

UFC 269: Co-Main Event Preview

Someone who knows a thing or two about title retention is Nunes (21-4-0, 13 KO), who still sits atop two women’s divisions. Fighting in the bantamweight class against Pena on Saturday, Nunes hasn’t lost in The Octagon since 2014, just her second year in the UFC.  It has been nothing but title fights for “The Lioness” since she submitted Miesha Tate at UFC 200: Tate vs Nunes in 2016. This is her second fight this year, last taking about in March where she submitted Megan Anderson at UFC 259.

Challenging Nunes isn’t for the lighthearted, and Pena (11-4-0, 3 KO) believes she’s up for the task. Standing two inches smaller than Nunes at 5’6”, Pena’s resume doesn’t measure up to the champ’s either. Since winning in The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale in 2013, Pena burst out to three quick wins in the UFC, including on that UFC 200 fight card against Cat Zingano. She hasn’t found consistency since then, rotating wins and losses every outing. Her last fight was a victorious one against Sara McMann by submission at UFC 257 last January.
