Following UFC Vegas 92, there will be no more UFC fights until June 1 at UFC 302. The UFC PPV card is headlined by a lightweight title fight between reigning champion Islam Makhachev who is taking on fan-favorite Dustin Poirier. The fight will take place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Makhachev will be defending his title for a third time but only the first time versus someone not named Alexander Volkanovski. He won the title by defeating Charles Oliveira for the vacant championship. His opponent is a former interim champion who had tried and failed many times at becoming an undisputed champion. Many believe this will be the last chance for Poirier. He's coming off a win over Benoît Saint-Denis. He previously lost his fights for the title versus then-champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and then-champion Charles Oliveira. He also lost his fight with Justin Gaethje for the BMF title.

In the co-main we have former middleweight champion Sean Strickland taking on Paulo Costa. But there are some thoughts that this fight might not happen as Strickland says Costa still has not signed the contract. It's unclear if that's accurate for a pre-fight mind game.

Fan favorites Kevin Holland, Randy Brown, and Niko Price also appear on the card.
