    A NEW KING WILL BE CROWNED

    In roughly around six hours' time, there will be a new king of the stacked lightweight division.

    The 155lb title has been vacant ever since the undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov announced his retirement from the sport last October.

    Charles Oliveira and Michael Chandler will look to kick start a new era in the 155lb division with an impressive display in their Texas tussle.

    But only time will tell if the belt will go back to Sao Paulo or if it'll remain in the USA.
