UFC 280 start time — Charles Oliveira vs. Islam Makhachev: Live stream, fight card, PPV price, prelims, TV

A UFC lightweight champion will be crowned at UFC 280. Charles Oliveira vs. Islam Makhachev headlines a stacked pay-per-view on Saturday in Abu Dhabi. The card also features UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling vs. former titleholder TJ Dillashaw.

Oliveira was forced to vacate the UFC lightweight title in May over a controversial and confusing weight miss, yet punched a ticket back to his unclaimed crown with a first-round finish of Justin Gaethje. Makhachev — the pupil and spiritual successor of undefeated former champion Khabib Nurmagomedov — has mauled his way to a world title shot after a nearly spotless 12-year run in MMA.

Elsewhere on the card, bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling looks to continue his incredible run when he takes on former champ TJ Dillashaw in the co-main event. Sterling secured a split decision win over Petr Yan earlier this year to silence the critics of his winning the title from Yan by disqualification in their first meeting. Dillashaw is back after a year away because of injury and also not too far away from a two-year drug suspension that cost him the title.

Below is all the information you need to catch UFC 280 on Saturday night.
