As of writing, the UFC has only confirmed the epic main event between Adesanya and Pereira.

We will of course update this page as and when the company confirms more bouts for the event from Madison Square Garden this November.

According to Ariel Helwani of The MMA Hourthe company is also looking to book Dustin Poirier vs. Michael Chandler in a massive Lightweight division bout.

This will be Poirier’s return to the octagon after losing to Charles Oliveira at UFC 269 back in December 2021. Prior to this though, ‘The Diamond’ had been on quite the roll, defeating Conor McGregor in two straight bouts at UFC 257 and UFC 264 in 2021.

Chandler will be walking into the octagon against Poirier coming off of a win against Tony Ferguson at UFC 274. ‘Iron’ Mike won that bout in epic fashion, knocking out his opponent with a front kick that rearranged Ferguson’s face temporarily.

Although the company themselves has not, as of writing, officially confirmed the bout, UFC commentator Michael Bisping has already discussed the huge bout on his YouTube Channel:
