It  will take place On Saturday, November 12 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

 It is a lightweight match between Dustin Poirier (28-7 MMA) and Michael Chandler (23-7 MMA)

Poirier, 33, will make his return to the Octagon after his defeat to Charles Oliveira (33-9 MMA) at UFC 269 in December of last year.

Miami Heat will sever relations with insolvent FTX and rename the arena.

At UFC 274, Chandler, 36, recently defeated Tony Ferguson, 25-8 MMA, by knockout.

He said  I'll beat him up if he fights me the way he fought Justin Gaethje.

 I'm going to clean him up, I swear to you, if he approaches the situation with a tough guy mentality and lets his n*ts hang, hands down.

In truth, at UFC 268 in November 2021, Justin Gaethje (23-4 MMA) defeated Michael Chandler by unanimous decision.

 Poirier exudes a strong sense of confidence in his ability to defeat Chandler this coming weekend.
