After an exciting UFC Vegas 26 card, it’s time to turn our focus to UFC 262 with our UFC 262 Staff Picks! We will finally get to see the resolution of the UFC’s lightweight title picture when the main event is in the books.

Tony Ferguson and Beneil Dariush will duke it out in the co-main event in a battle of top lightweights. Matt Schnell and Rogerio Bontorin will face off in a bantamweight scrap that is sure to entertain.

Katlyn Chookagian and Viviane Araujo will battle it out in a flyweight fight that could have future title implications. Shane Burgos and Edson Barboza will kick off the main card in a battle of top-15 featherweights. This will be an action-packed card that you don’t want to miss!
