Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje booked for UFC 274 on May 7

Reigning UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira will defend his 155-pound title against top division contender Justin Gaethje at the UFC 274 pay-per-view (PPV) event, according to ESPN, scheduled for Sat., May 7, 2022 at a city and venue to be determined. Brazil was on the table, but COVID may force the promotion to look elsewhere.

Oliveira (32-8, 1 NC) captured the vacant lightweight title by smashing Michael Chandler at UFC 262, then defended his strap by tapping Dustin Poirier at UFC 269. As for Gaethje (23-3), he rebounded from a submission defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 254 to outpoint the aforementioned Chandler in their “Fight of the Night” at UFC 268.
