The cardboard, scheduled for Oct. 22 on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, options two title bouts. Brazilian Charles Oliveira takes on Russia’s Islam Makhachev, the No. 4 contender, for the vacant light-weight championship whereas Aljamain (Funk Grasp) Sterling defends his bantamweight crown in opposition to fellow American T.J. Dillashaw, ranked second amongst 135-pound contenders.
