On Saturday, Charles Oliveira will defend his lightweight title against Dustin Poirier in UFC 269.

The main card will start at 10:00PM EST at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

Dustin Poirier moved up as the #1 challenger in the lightweight division after two high-profile wins over Conor McGregor.

Those huge wins earned him a title shot in the last match of the UFC this year.

He's out to prove himself as the worthy champion in the lightweight division this weekend.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Dustin Poirier as the favorite to win over Charles Oliviera on Saturday's UFC 269.
