São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil, September 22, 2018. UFC Fight Night - Marreta vs. Anders - Charles Oliveira vs. Christos Giagos


The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to pay-per-view this weekend with UFC 280, featuring a championship doubleheader at Etihad Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

In the main event, former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira looks to reclaim his title when he takes on the red hot Islam Makhachev, who is riding a 10-fight winning streak. Oliveira had his title stripped after failing to make weight for his UFC 274 title defense against Justin Gaethje in May.

In the co-main event, bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling defends his belt against former titleholder TJ Dillashaw. If that wasn’t exciting enough, the featured bout is also in the bantamweight division with fan-favorite Sean O’Malley facing the toughest test of his career when he takes on former champion Petr Yan.

Ahead of the event, the UFC dropped the pay-per-view cold open narrated by Ron Perlman to get you hyped.
