UFC 274: Oliveira vs. Gaethje fight card, date, timings in IST, telecast & live streaming information

Two blockbuster title bouts headline UFC 274

Bengaluru, May 4: The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Arizona this weekend with UFC 274: Oliveira vs. Gathje which is headlined by a couple of thrilling world title bouts.

In the main event of the promotion's fifth numbered event, UFC lightweight champion Charles Oliveira was expected to make his second title defence against former interim champion and current number 1 contender Justin Gaethje.

But, during the weigh-ins Oliveira missed weight, forcing him to vacate the title and also forfeiting a percentage of his purse. However, the title match will now be contested for the vacant title with only Gaethje eligible to win the championship. If Oliveria wins the bout, he will be the number one contender for the vacant titles.

In the co-main event, UFC women's strawweight champion Rose Namajunas makes her third title defence in a rematch against familiar foe and former champion No. 2 ranked Carla Esparza.

Also on the stacked main card, lightweight division's No. 5 ranked Michael Chandler and No. 7 ranked Tony Ferguson face in a bout guaranteed to deliver fireworks.

Plus, MMA legend Mauricio "Shogun" Rua rematches Ovince Saint Preux at light heavyweight after lightweight veterans finally battle when Donald Cerrone meets Joe Lauzon in the potential main card opener.

Meanwhile, the preliminary card will see the likes of Andre Fialho, Cameron VanCamp, Randy Brown, Khaos Williams, Macy Chiasson, Norma Dumont, Brandon Royval and Matt Schnell in action after the early preliminary card.

The early prelims will feature Blagoy Ivanov, Marcos Rogerio de Lima, Francisco Trinaldo, Danny Roberts, Tracy Cortez, Ariane Carnelossi, Lupita Godinez and Journey Newson among others in action.
