There are a number of huge bouts set to take place on the fight card, with Charles Oliveira vs Islam Makhachev for the vacant Lightweight title and Aljamain Sterling vs TJ Dillashaw for the UFC Bantamweight title set to top the night.
Even beyond the main and co-main events there are some great bouts set to take place, with Petr Yan, Sean O’Malley, Beneil Dariush, Katlyn Chookagian and Belal Muhammad all scheduled to compete on the card!
Here is everything you need to know about the date of UFC 280 from the Etihad Arena in Yas Island later in 2022.
UFC 280 Date
UFC 280 is set to take place on Saturday, October 22nd 2022 from the Etihad Arena in Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
This will be the second to last PPV event for the company in 2022, although there are a number of UFC Fight Night cards still set to take place between now and the end of December.
November is usually the date of a major Madison Square Garden event for the company, and that is the case again this year with UFC 281.
However, it’s arguable that UFC 280 could actually have a better fight card on paper so far and could end up being a date that fight fans will remember for some time!
