Charles Oliveira may not have walked away with his UFC lightweight title last night (Sat., May 7, 2022) at UFC 274 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona, but “Do Bronx” still captured a memorable submission win over Justin Gaethje in the main event (highlights HERE).
In addition to the lightweight headliner, UFC 274’s stacked card produced memorable action from top to bottom. Check it out below and let us know which one stood out the most:
- Michael Chandler produced one of the best knockouts of all time when he slept lightweight veteran Tony Ferguson with an insane front kick KO (see it HERE)
- Flyweight contender Brandon Royval scored an exciting submission finish over veteran Matt Schnell in the very first round
- Andre Fialho continued his winning ways with a first-round knockout over welterweight newcomer Cameron VanCamp (highlights HERE)
- Flyweight prospect C.J. Vergara and Kleydson Rodrigues went toe-to-toe in a “Prelims” war with Vergara coming out with a split-decision
