Yes I agree with the other poster.  This is going to probably be Chimaev vs Usman for the title.  Maybe throw in Oliveira/Gaethje vs Islam for a double title fight main event which sees both Chimaev and Islam winning the titles in Abu Dhabi.

I dont think Usman will do a 3 month turn around to face Khamzat, would love for it to happen though.

Khamzat vs Colby for the WW interm title rumored to happen in this event.
Kamaru won’t be fully recovered by then.

I think it’s going to Charles Vs Islam and have Khamzat vs Belal winner fights for the title as the co main event. The featured fight could Micheal Chandler vs Beniel Daruish winner could also fight for the title next.

You're telling me that one of the hypest fighters we've ever seen in this sport could go up against one of the most boring of the division? I don't think anyone wants to see that fight, and I don't think it would be good business-wise. We all know Belal will never become champion. He's the Derek Brunson of the WW division.

Main Event/Co-Main Event Prediction

Predictions: 7 of 12 Winners, 2 Perfect, 400 Points   |   Tied for 3421st

Total shot in the dark guess, but I think Oliveira vs Islam will be anounced during UFC 276.

The two previous cards UFC 274 and UFC 275 announced big headliners (Adesanya vs Cannonier, and Usman vs Edwards, respectively), both unannounced and only rumored to the public. Wouldn't be surprised if this is announced live on broadcast during the main card. Also in the last 5-6 days multiple outlets, including Chael's Youtube channel, progressed the rumors that this fight was in the works!

As for co-headliner, I am certain it will be for womens strawweight, although if its for the title or interm title is yet to be seen! 

I am hoping the Stipe - Bones fight gets made for the fall, but you never know with with Uncle Dana and Bones chatter anymore :,,,)

i think we 100% see charles vs islam here if we get any other title fights idk but lets think for a second 

carla is ducking zhang and saying she wont be ready shes going to push that ass beating off for as long as she possibly can maybe the fight happens here idk 

valentina is doubtful after that last fight and not having a set contender until manon wins her fight in paris im assuming 

nunes vs pena 2 is happening so nothing here 

with kkf and moreno likely going to war i cant see either of them being ready for figgy by then 

aljo vs tj is already booked 

volkanovski holloway is happening and unless volk puts on a clinic and yair looks like a new contender by beating ortega nothing here

usman is fighting leon so nope 

izzy and peirerra would both have to walk out of their fights with very minimal damage to book that one here doubtful 

i actually think maybe we see a jiri title defense here but then again magomed or anthony smith or blachowicz wont be ready 

and ciryl is booked ngannou is hurt maybe this is the card jones vs stipe happens and lots of other just big name fighters appear maybe the likes of khamzat

Prachnio had one good run in the ufc and he’s gonna get the young killers until he gets cut

I don’t mean Phillipe Lins of course. Mingyang looks very nice on the feet at only 23 he’s gonna only get better

Sean Brady vs belal Muhammed added. Wonder why they didn’t do belal vs Khamzat; potentially Colby vs Khamzat then? Also, horrendously bad matchup for Sean Brady

Chimaev deserves better than Muhammad, that's a worthless matchup for him. Brady vs Belal is probably gonna be a shutout in the favor of Belal, but it's a good fight that makes sense. Khamzat needs to fight that ***** Colby or no one at all. He needs to man up and stop faking a god damn injury, move on or gtfo ************

Not really, belal vs Khamzat would be a title eliminator. It made sense

I actually really wanna see Borz Vs Colby holy **** that is a pretty epic grapple fight.
And Colby is not chinny so no cheeky fakeout ko to rob fans of seeing him actually earn a win.
