The biggest UFC card of the year goes down Saturday afternoon from Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. UFC 280 is headlined by a pair of title bouts and a card rounded out by familiar names and many of the top fighters across several divisions.
In the main event, Charles Oliveira battles Islam Makhachev for the vacant lightweight championship. Oliveira was forced to vacate the title before his most recent fight when he missed weight by less than one pound for his bout with Justin Gaethje. He now looks to regain the belt and run his winning streak to 12 when he battles Makhachev, who is riding his own 10-fight winning streak.
