In addition to the Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje lightweight title fight, the UFC 274 pay-per-view (PPV) event will also feature strawweight champion Rose Namajunas defending her strap against former 115-pound titleholder Carla Esparza, a rematch from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20 Finale that ended in favor of “Cookie Monster.”
UFC 274 takes place this Sat. night (May 7) inside inside Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
“Since Carla and I fought, the strawweight division, the championship belt has changed hands a few different times and here I am on my second defense,” Namajunas said on Episode 2 of UFC 274 Embedded. “I fought all of the other champions so far and all I have is left is Carla to beat. It’s a lot of history, it’s cool to be a part of and I look forward to performing.”
