Two major title fights will take place on May 7 at UFC 274. The card will be held inside the Footprint Center in Phoenix.
In the main event, Charles Oliveira defends the UFC lightweight title against Justin Gaethje. Oliveira beat Michael Chandler at UFC 262 to win the UFC lightweight title. At UFC 269 in December, he beat Dustin Poirier via submission to defend the belt. Oliveira joined the UFC in 2010 after making his MMA debut in 2008. He is 20-8 with one no-contest in the UFC and is on a 10-fight winning streak.
Gaethje, a World Series of Fighting lightweight champion, made his MMA debut in 2011. All but one of his wins in the UFC have been via some form of knockout. “The Highlight” is coming off a violent affair against Chandler at UFC 268 in November. Gaethje won the fight via unanimous decision.
The second title fight will be between Rose Namajunas and Carla Esparza. Namajunas made her pro debut in 2013. Joining the UFC in 2015, she shocked the world by beating Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 217 to become UFC strawweight champion. She lost the title against Jessica Andrade, beat Andrade in a rematch, and reclaimed the belt against Zhang Weili in April 2021. In a rematch in November, Namajunas beat Zhang to retain the title. In her last six fights, Namajunas has competed in bouts against the same three competitors.
