UFC 262 - Chandler vs Oliveira - Preview

The UFC is heading to Houston this Saturday, May 8th for UFC 262. The PPV will have the most competitive division crown a new king after Khabib Nurmagomedov retired for good. Battling for the gold is Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira and former Bellator champion, "Iron" Michael Chandler.

You're not going to want to miss this one. Oliveira is tied for most UFC finishes as well as most submission victories. Chandler is fresh off a KO win in his UFC debut over Dan Hooker. This is going to be fireworks for sure. Did I mention that there will be a crowd for this. Yeah, place will be going nuts.

Co main event is going to be a great lead up as well. Tony Ferguson is taking on Beneil Dariush. Both guys are always in exciting fights and this is a great piece of matchmaking right there.

Ever since renting my first UFC VHS at my local video store, I’ve been in love with the sport of MMA. I’ve watched every single fight that has ever taken place under the UFC banner over the past 25 years. Once I started doing incredibly well in fantasy leagues, I realized I could utilize my skills in fight analytics to make a profit on betting. My obsession with researching every aspect of a fight gave me a real edge in finding value. Since then, it's been one profitable year after the next. Watching your favorite sport is good, but getting paid while watching your favorite sport is better.
