Oliveira misses weight at the UFC 274 event scheduled to take place Saturday, May 7th 2022. The main draw on the card is Oliveira vs Gaethje for the Lightweight title. It all came down to half of a pound. When the defending champion, Charles Oliveira, stepped on the scale he came in a half of a pound over and just could not manage to shake the additional weight. It’s a little disappointing, but the rule stands that he will not retain the lightweight champion after missing weight. Justin Gaethje, however, could end up becoming the Lightweight champion should he get his hand raised Saturday night.
In addition the co main event features another title bout. Carla Esparza will take on Women’s Strawweight champion Rose Namajunas. Both of these women were recently featured in our Top Ten Female UFC Fighters article. We’ve included the UFC Ceremonial Weigh Ins video and you can catch all the matchups in our prior fight card post.

The results are in for UFC Fight Night Font vs Vera. A big match in the Bantamweight division as the #8 ranked Marlon Vera fought #5 ranked Rob Font. Aljamain Sterling is the current champion in the Bantamweight division and nobody called him out after the match. It looked as if Font won the first round and nearly the second until Vera dropped him near the end of that round. Afterward, Vera just kept having opportunities where he would hurt Font but did not follow up for the finish. It seemed a little off.
The night was co headlined by Arlovski vs Collier. Ultimately it was Arlovski who managed to increase his win streak to four in a row. The night was full of action with some great prelims. Check below for all the outcomes and the post fight press conference video courtesy of the UFC.

UFC Vegas 11, press conference took place Thursday, September 17th 2020, however, the main event fighters took the stage on a solo basis and remained pretty political. While Woodley refused to answer any questions in depth, instead responding only with the Black Lives Matter mantra, Covington donned a Keep America Great hat and discussed admiration for the current administration. It was quite an odd press conference to say the least.
