The UFC returns to the United Arab Emirates in October. And they pull out all the stops.

The promotion returns to the Etihad Arena on Yas Island on October 22 with a couple of title fights on top of the marquee, as well as three mass fights on the undercard. The main event will see the vacant lightweight title contested as former title holder Charles Oliveira takes on rising title contender Islam Makhachev. Oliveira has an incredible 11-fight winning streak but was stripped of his title before his last fight against Justin Gaethje due to weight loss. Makhachev, meanwhile, has his own tally of 10 fights.

The co-main event provides another exciting title fight as bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling takes on former title holder T.J. Dillashaw. Sterling retained his title in a rematch with Petr Yan last time out, while Dillashaw returned after a two-year absence due to a failed drug test to outplay Corey Sandhagen.

Speaking of Jan, the former bantamweight title holder is set to take on one of the sport’s rising stars, Sean O’Malley. The two argued on social media in the months leading up to the announcement of this fight before finally signing. O’Malley disappoints with no competition after inadvertently eyeballing Pedro Munoz in July.
