UFC 302 Fight Card

UFC 302 takes place this coming Saturday night, June 1st in Newark, New Jersey and you can check out the full fight card below.

In the main event there’s lightweight title action as the UFC’s current No.1 pound-for-pound star Islam Makhachev looks to defend the belt for the third time against Dustin Poirier, who is coming in off a big KO victory against Benoit Saint Denis in March.

The co-main event sees the return of former middleweight champion Sean Strickland, whose brief title reign ended in a split-decision loss to Dricus du Plessis in January and now takes on Paulo Costa, who is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Robert Whittaker in February.

After back-to-back losses, Kevin Holland moves back up to middleweight for his next fight against Michal Olekseijczuk, who has lost two of his last three fights.

Jailton Almeida’s heavyweight title aspirations took a hit last time out when his six-fight winning streak in the promotion came to an abrupt end courtesy of a KO loss to Curtis Blaydes. Now he’ll hope to get back on track against Alexandr Romanov, who took this match-up on a few weeks notice as he tries to build on a win over Blagoy Ivanov last time out.

Opening up the pay-per-view main card will be Randy Brown, who is hoping to extend his winning streak to three fights when he takes on Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos, who is unbeaten in his last three fights, though the most recent of those was a majority draw.
