Oliveira misses weight at the UFC 274 weigh ins. The event is 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.
