Bloody Elbow presents its fight night and post-fight coverage for UFC 274, which goes down on Saturday, May 7th at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. In the main event, Charles Oliveira takes on former WSOF champion Justin Gaethje in a must-see battle between two of the most entertaining and dangerous mixed martial artists the sport has ever seen. Due to Oliveira missing weight, only Gaethje is eligible to win the belt.
The co-main event is a women’s strawweight championship rematch between current champion Rose Namajunas and former champion Carla Esparza. Back in 2014, Esparza won the inaugural title by submitting Namajunas via rear-naked choke. Nearly eight years later, Namajunas comes in as the champ and Esparza is the title challenger.
The featured three-round non-title fight pits former Bellator lightweight champion and one-time UFC title challenger Michael Chandler against former interim champion Tony Ferguson.
