CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLE DIP! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Phoenix, Ariz., on Sat., May 7, 2022, with a blockbuster championship doubleheader. 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!

Of course, Oliveira will no longer be defending his UFC lightweight title after failing to make weight during Friday’s early weigh ins. The Brazilian champion was given extra time to cut a half pound, but he couldn’t hit the 155-pound mark and was stripped of his lightweight belt.

Luckily, Gaethje is still eligible to walk away with the undisputed UFC lightweight title if he’s able to defeat Oliveira so the UFC 274 PPV main event still holds some valuable importance. On the other hand, if Oliveira is able to take out Gaethje he’ll line himself up to fight for the vacant lightweight strap his next time out.
