This article will read all the information about UFC 280: Oliveira vs. Makhachev Purse, Payouts, and Salaries. The UFC will return to Abu Dhabi on October 22 for UFC 280: Oliveira vs. Makhachev. In the main event, lightweight contenders will clash with Islam Makhachev putting his undefeated record on the line against surging contender Charles Olivera.
At UFC 274, Oliveira was stripped of the lightweight title when he failed to make weight for his bout with former interim champion (also former WSOF Lightweight Champion) Justin Gaethje. Beneil Dariush is the backup fighter for the scheduled contest between him and former KSW Featherweight and Lightweight Champion Mateusz Gamrot.
At this event, Katlyn Chookagian and Manon Fiorot are anticipated to compete in the inaugural UFC Women’s Flyweight Championship. They were supposed to meet at UFC Fight Night: Gane vs. Tuivasa a month prior, with Chookagian quitting once for undisclosed reasons, only to return as a replacement for her understudy.
