LAS VEGAS – The final pay-per-view of UFC’s 2021 schedule is rapidly approaching as UFC 269 takes place Saturday night.
The loaded lineup features two championship fights at the top of the bill. In the main event, Charles Oliveira (31-8 MMA, 19-8 UFC) will put his lightweight title on the line against Dustin Poirier (28-6 MMA, 20-5 UFC) in a matchup of two experienced veterans who will combine to set UFC title-fight records for the most total fights, wins, finishes and bonuses.
Additionally, the top pound-for-pound women’s fighter in the game returns in the co-main event when dual-champ Amanda Nunes (21-4 MMA, 14-1 UFC) puts her women’s bantamweight title on the line against Julianna Pena (10-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC).
To help prepare for the mega-event, lead UFC play-by-play man Jon Anik joined MMA Junkie’s Mike Bohn to run over the top storylines around the event and its two championship fights.
