Two titles will be on the line when UFC 274: Oliveira vs. Gaethje is live from the Footprint Center in Phoenix this Saturday, May 7, exclusively on ESPN+ PPV (English and Spanish) at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.  Earlier, the Prelims will be on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT and the Early Prelims on ESPN+ at 5:30 p.m. ET / 2:30 p.m. PT. Live coverage includes two editions of UFC Live Presented by DraftKings Sportsbook: Oliveira vs. Gaethje – on ESPNEWS on Friday, May 6, at 4 p.m. ET and on ABC and ESPN3 on Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m. The show will provide fans with exclusive insights and views heading into the action.   

In the main event, UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira (32-8) looks to win his 11th fight in a row when he defends the title against No. 1 Justin Gaethje (23-3).  Oliveira won the championship belt by beating Michael Chandler at UFC 262 for the vacant Lightweight title and has defended it once.  Gaethje, a former interim champ, has won five of his last six outings.  His last fight was the first of his UFC tenure that went to the judges.   

The co-main is a rematch seven years in the making.  Strawweight title holder Rose Namajunas (12-4) seeks to avenge her loss in December 2014 in The Ultimate Fighter 20 finale to No. 2 Carla Esparza (19-6).  Namajunas – the only two-time women’s champion in UFC history – recaptured the belt by defeating Zhang Weili at UFC 261 and has defended it once.  Esparza is riding a five-bout winning streak.   

The PPV portion of the card also features UFC icon No. 7 Tony Ferguson (26-6) who hopes to snap a three-fight losing streak when he squares off in a Lightweight matchup against No. 5 Michael Chandler (22-7) in one of the most highly anticipated fights of the year.   

Jon Anik will call the action, alongside former two-division title holder Daniel Cormier and Joe Rogan.  Megan Olivi will handle reporting duties.  All coverage in Spanish will be handled by Troy Santiago, Alexa Grasso and Brandon Moreno.
