Headlining the pay-per-view (PPV) event will be Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, seeking to defend his title against No. 1-ranked contender, Justin Gaethje. In UFC 274’s co-main event, women’s Strawweight champion, Rose Namajunas, looks to avenge her loss against No. 2-seeded, Carla Esparza. And top-ranked Lightweight contenders collide when Michael Chandler (No. 5) locks horns with Tony Ferguson (No. 7) in a fan-friendly 155-pound clash for the ages.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Della Maddalena had a noticeable size advantage and used it to land a crisp lead jab. Rodriguez hung in there to land some counter shots to the body, but Della Maddalena was simply too precise. He picked Rodriguez apart and had his face bloodied with just two minutes off the clock. Eventually, a counter left landed for Della Maddalena and Rodriguez went down. Della Maddalena rushed in for the two piece and soda and that was all she wrote.
