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 here.

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.
