The UFC is ready for its latest pay-per-view offering. This time around, the Octagon landed in Phoenix, Arizona for UFC 274 on Saturday night with a pair of title fights on the marquee along with some legendary veterans rounding out the card. However, things changed drastically on Friday at the weigh-ins. Lightweight champion Charles Oliveira failed to make weight and was stripped of the title from him. Now, he will fight Justin Gaethje in the main event with no chance of getting him back as a consequence. Gaethje, however, can still win the crown if he emerges victorious.
Meanwhile, women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas and Carla Esparza will meet in the co-main event to repeat a fight that dates back to 2014. Esparza won the inaugural strawweight crown against Namajunas in The Ultimate season 20 finale. Fighter. She then quickly lost to Joanna Jedrzejczyk and has been working her way back to title level ever since. Namajunas, however, fought through adversity to come out on top when she edged out Jedrzejczyk for the title in 2017.
