UFC 274 time: When does Oliveira vs Gaethje start in the UK and US this weekend?


One of the most important UFC cards of the year will take place in Phoenix, Arizona this weekend, as two titles are contested after what should be a fight of the night contender in the lightweight division.

Charles Oliveira makes the second defence of his lightweight title in the main event, going up against former interim title holder Justin Gaethje in a highly-anticipated clash.

In the co-main event, Carla Esparza seeks her second victory over Rose Namajunas and her second reign as strawweight champion, while Namajunas looks to avenge that loss to her fellow American and retain the gold.

Before those bouts take place, Michael Chandler and Tony Ferguson go head to head in a meeting between fan favourites who are looking to close ground to the lightweight title picture.

Here’s all you need to know about UFC 274.
