We’re one sleep away from UFC 274.

Two title fights sit atop the UFC’s return to Phoenix, Arizona. Charles Oliveira defends his lightweight title against home turf hero Justin Gaethje. ‘Thug’ Rose Namajunas looks to get revenge against Carla Esparza, years after their first encounter.  Esparza became the UFC’s inaugural 115-pound champion on December 20, 2014, when she defeated Namajunas via third round submission in the finals of The Ultimate Fighter 20.

Also on the card is a fan-favorite clash between Tony Ferguson and Michael Chandler. 

Before the action begins, fighters must make things official on the scales.

*Charles Oliveira misses weight on all three of his attempts. He has been stripped of the UFC lightweight title. Fight is still on, with Gaethje being eligible to win the title only.

Due to the weight miss, Oliveira will forfeit a percentage of his purse.  As of this moment, Charles Oliveira remains the UFC Lightweight Champion, but upon the start of the Main Event Headliner tomorrow night he will vacate the 155-pound title.  The fight will proceed as scheduled, but the championship will only be on the line for Gaethje. If Oliveira wins, he will be the number one contender for the vacant Lightweight Championship and will fight the next challenger for the undisputed title belt at a time and place to be determined. As per UFC Press Release

**Norma Dumont fined 30% of her purse for missing weight. She will not weigh in again.
