UFC 274: Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje – Live Results and Highlights!
Update: Joe Lauzon vs. Donald Cerrone is removed from UFC 274 Main Card after Cerrone is forced to pull out due to illness.
Tonight, it’s time for UFC 274 which takes place in Phoenix, USA. The event offers several exciting fights, including two title fights.
After missing weight on Friday, the lightweight champion Charles Oliveira was stripped of his title, which means that only the challenger Justin Gaethje has the opportunity to win gold in the main event bout at UFC 274. The Brazilian will also be fined part of his show money.
Despite that, the main event promises a lot of excitement despite the weight problem, as both fighters are at the top in one of the most competitive divisions in the organization.
Oliveira enters the octagon with a winning streak of ten straight, with wins over names like Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier, who defeated “The Highlight” Gaethje four years ago.
Since then, however, Gaethje has made several adjustments to his ruthless fighting style and shown that he can offer more strategic fights when needed! Oliveira and Gaethje have a total of 49 finishes in their 66 matches – statistics that promise fireworks in the main event!
The co-main event will be at least as exciting as the sharp strawweight champion Rose Namajunas defends her title against the challenger Carla Esparza. Early in his UFC career, “Thug” Rose suffered a loss via submission against Esparza, but both fighters have evolved a lot since then and the return match at the big gala will probably take place completely differently.
