The UFC returns to New Jersey for UFC 302. The 12-fight card is headlined by lightweight champion Islam Makhachev defending his championship against perennial contender Dustin Poirier.

Makhavchev defeated Charles Oliveria at UFC 280 to capture the championship. In both of his title defenses, Makhavchev defeated former featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski, who was attempting to achieve double champ status. If Makhavchev successfully defends his title, he will tied the record for most title defenses of the lightweight title with BJ Penn, Frankie Edgar, Benson Henderson, and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Poirier has long been one of the top contenders at lightweight. However, he has lost his previous two title fights to Olivieria and Nurmagomedov. In his last fight, Poirier scored an impressive knockout of French contender Benoit Saint Denis. For Poirier, this will be his last chance to become an undisputed UFC champion.

In the co-main event, former middleweight champion Sean Strickland fights Paulo Costa. Strickland defeated Israel Adesanya at UFC 293 to become champion. However, Strickland's title reign was short, as he lost to Dricus du Plessis at UFC 297 in his first title defense. A win for Strickland will likely earn him a future title fight. Costa is the seventh-ranked middleweight but is in desperate need of a victory. The Brazilian contender has lost three of his previous four fights after starting his career 13-0.
