The UFC’s latest pay-per-view spectacular heads to Phoenix, Arizona for UFC 274, where a pair of title fights, plus a huge contender bout at lightweight pack out the top of the card at the Footprint Center.
The main event features a battle for the undisputed lightweight title, as reigning champ Charles Oliveira takes on former interim champion Justin Gaethje, while the co-main event features a strawweight title rematch as two-time champion Rose Namajunas takes on the woman who defeated her for the inaugural title eight years ago, Carla Esparza.
There’s also a pivotal clash at 155 pounds, as former interim champion Tony Ferguson makes his return to the octagon to face three-time former Bellator lightweight champion Michael Chandler.
Ahead of the event, the UFC’s “Embedded” cameras are following the fighters behind the scenes as they work their way through fight week, from their final moments at home to their arrival in Phoenix and their media obligations before the weigh-ins and the final faceoffs before fight night itself.
As described on the UFC’s official YouTube channel, on Episode 4, “Carla Esparza and Tony Ferguson talk about TUF days. Justin Gaethje gets in the zone. Champ Rose Namajunas’ coach recounts her evolution; LW king Charles Olivera looks to his legacy. Ferguson sizes up his opponent; Michael Chandler sees a familiar face.”
