UFC 274 is gearing up to be one of the most stacked cards of 2022! It comes loaded with two championship fights as well as a lot of name value. In the main event, UFC Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, defends his title against Justin Gaethje. Rose Namajumas, the UFC Women’s Strawweight champion, also puts her belt on the line against Carla Esparza.
Exciting lightweights Michael Chandler and Tony Ferguson also face off against one another. Ovince Saint Preux and the legendary Mauricio “Shogun” Rua face each other in a light heavyweight bout. The card opens with Donald Cerrone and Joe Lauzon in a lightweight legends match.
The stacked UFC card takes place at the Footprints Centre in Phoenix, Arizona on May 7, 2022.
In the main event, Oliveira, the fifth ranked pound-for-pound fighter on the UFC rankings, will have his second title defense against Gaethje. Despite the number of people underestimating his skills and mental fortitude against Dustin Poirier, he finished him in the third round. When he won the belt against Chandler, he also powered through adversity in the first round and ended the fight in the second. He is facing off against Gaethje who has become a lethal machine under the tutelage of Trevor Wittman. We expect a car collision-type of a fight with heavy strikes, submission attempts, and a finish.
A rematch seven years in the making goes down in the co-main event. Rose will defend the belt against Esparza who beat her for the first title in 2014. Rose will come into the fight with a lot of confidence as she is unbeaten in four previous rematches. She has grown leaps and bounds since then as shown in the fights against Andrade and Zhang Weili. Carla will look to overcome her striking deficiencies by exploiting penetrable takedown defense.
Also on the main card, exciting lightweights on losing streaks face off against one another. Ferguson is surprisingly the biggest undercard on the card. He will look to defy the oddsmakers by making a statement against Chandler. Legends, Cowboy Cerrone and Joe Lauzon will open the card in what is also expected to be an exciting match-up.
