UFC 274 has now added its second title fight, and it has potential Fight of the Night or even Fight of the year.
The UFC lightweight championship will be on the line on May 7 as Charles Oliveira is set to defend his title against Justin Gaethje.
UFC 274 was originally targeted to take place in Brazil. However, plans have since shifted back stateside, although the event does not yet have a confirmed venue or location.
Oliveira (32-8 MMA, 20-8 UFC) will look to defend the lightweight title for the second time. He recorded his first defense at UFC 269, taking out former interim champion Dustin Poirier in the third round with a rear-naked choke submission. This was on the heels of claiming the vacant title by defeating Michael Chandler in the second round via TKO at UFC 262.
Now, another former interim champion stands in his path.
UFC 274 line up:
Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka – for light heavyweight title
Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje – for lightweight title
Macy Chiasson vs. Norma Dumont
Ariane Carnelossi vs. Loopy Godinez
