After two big-money fights with Conor McGregor, Dustin Poirier is finally ready to step into the Octagon and attempt to claim the UFC lightweight championship. Poirier will face off with champion Charles Oliveira in the main event of UFC 269 on Dec. 11 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Oliveira won the then-vacant championship in May, scoring a comeback knockout of Michael Chandler at UFC 262. He is now riding a nine-fight winning streak. For Poirier, UFC 269 is his second chance to win the lightweight title, having lost to Khabib Nurmagomedov in September 2019, a fight where Poirier entered as the interim champion.
There is one other title fight set for the card as the greatest female mixed martial artist in UFC history, Amanda Nunes, returns to the Octagon to defend her women’s bantamweight title against veteran Julianna Pena. Nunes has won 12 consecutive fights, including wins over every champion in the history of the bantamweight and featherweight division. Pena rebounded from a loss in her most recent outing and is 2-2 in her four most recent fights.
The card was also expected to see the much anticipated welterweight showdown between Jorge Masvidal and Leon Edwards, but Masvidal was forced to withdraw from the bout in November with an undisclosed injury. Still, the card stacks up with some massive fights below the pair of title tilts, including the returns of former champions Cody Garbrandt and Dominick Cruz, as well as rising bantamweight contender “Suga” Sean O’Malley.
Below is the current fight card with the latest odds from Caesars Sporstbook.
