UFC 269 Fight Card: Who’s Fighting in the Octagon Tonight?

UFC 269 is happening this evening, and for its final pay-per-view event of the year, the Ultimate Fighting Championship is delivering a whopping 15-fight card with 30 combatants entering the Octagon at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Headlining the event is a UFC Lightweight Championship match, where newly crowned champ Charles Oliveira will be defending his title against Dustin Poirier. Fans are looking forward to a long night of MMA action before the main event, so read on to see the entire UFC 269 fight card of fighters doing their ring-walks tonight.

UFC events typically have 12 to 14 fights spread across two or three fight cards, but UFC 269: Oliveira vs. Poirier is ending the year with a bang, serving up 15 fights in total: five on the main card (including two championship bouts), four prelims, and six matchups on the early preliminary card. The early prelims start at 6:15 p.m. ET/3:15 p.m. PT, followed by the preliminary card at 8 p.m. ET and then the main card at 10 p.m. ET. You can see the complete roster below.

The main event is a long-awaited lightweight championship challenge for Dustin Poirier, who briefly held the interim lightweight belt in 2019 before losing a unification bout to Khabib Nurmagomedov. Poirier later passed up a second title shot in favor of a trilogy bout with Conor McGregor, which he won, and is now finally ready to make another run for the gold. This will be Charles Oliveira’s first title defense after the Brazilian took the belt (which had been vacated by Khabib following his retirement) at UFC 262 in May. The co-headliner is another championship contest, where reigning UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Amanda Nunes will defend her title against challenger Julianna Pena.
