UFC 280's stacked card now has another potential barnburner on the card, with Belal Muhammad taking on Sean Brady in the prelims.
UFC 280 is touted to be the best pay-per-view of the year with arguably the most anticipated championship fight headlining the card. Former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira will go up against the surging Islam Makhachev and his 10-fight win streak. The main card will feature another title fight between bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling and the returning former champ T.J. Dillashaw.
Furthermore, Sean O'Malley and former bantamweight champion Petr Yan will lock horns while Beneil Dariush and Mateusz Gamrot take on each other in a firecracker of a match. Katlyn Chookagian will face Manon Fiorot in a women's flyweight bout to fill out the main card.
