Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of five bouts on this 12-bout UFC 262: 'Oliveira vs Chandler' Main Card.
"Even with a couple lost bouts, this weekend’s UFC 262 PPV card is a rock solid event. Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler face off in the main event, challenging for Khabib Nurmagomedov’s vacated lightweight title. In the co-main Tony Ferguson and Beneil Dariush face off for an all action top-10 battle. And Shane Burgos faces off against Edson Barboza just to make sure fans get their full quotient of violence for the evening." - Zane Simon
