With two title fights on the card, UFC 274 won't be short of action. The prelude will see Rose Namajunas clash with bitter rival Carla Esparza for the Women's strawweight belt. Can Namajunas keep her strap intact and avenge her 2014 defeat to the "Cookie Monster"?
Then, it's the headline fight. Expect fireworks when champion Charles "Do Bronx" Oliveira (32-8-0) makes his second defence of the 155lb strap against fiery American challenger Justin "The Highlight" Gaethje (23-3-0). Despite losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov by submission at UFC 254, Gaethje reckons that Oliveira just isn't on the same level.
"[It's] the same Charles that fought Cub Swanson. The same Charles that fought Donald Cerrone. The same Charles that fought [Anthony] Pettis. Choices were made in that by him and the choice to quit was made, and I’m going to give him that choice on Saturday night.... once a coward always a coward."
