If all goes as planned, the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s return
to the Toyota Center in Houston will feature a super-sized 15-bout
lineup.

The Las Vegas promotion announced the finalized card for the May 15
event, including a pair of new lightweight bouts: Lando
Vannata
vs. Mike Grundy
and Kevin
Aguilar
vs. Tucker
Lutz
.

UFC 262 will take place at the Toyota Center with no crowd
restrictions in place. The event is headlined by a clash between
Michael
Chandler
and Charles
Oliveira
for the vacant lightweight title, while Leon
Edwards
and Nate Diaz will
square off in a five-round non-title co-main event. The lineup for
the entire card can be viewed

Vannata went 1-1 in 2020 and is coming off a decision loss to
Bobby
Green
in a rematch at UFC Fight Night 173. Grundy, meanwhile,
had a nine-bout winning streak snapped at UFC on ESPN 14, where he
dropped a three-round verdict to Movsar
Evloev
.

After winning his first two Octagon appearances, Aguilar has
dropped three in a row, falling to Dan Ige,
Zubaira
Tukhugov
and Charles
Rosa
in succession. Lutz will be making his promotional debut
after earning a pair of victories on Dana White’s Contender Series
to run his professional mark to 11-1.
