The UFC has lined up a stellar card for its upcoming pay-per-view event, which is set to take place on May 7 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. UFC 274 is one of the most highly-anticipated PPVs of the year and for good reason. The card will be headlined by an explosive lightweight title clash between Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje.

The co-headliner features an intriguing battle for the women's strawweight title between reigning champ Rose Namajunas and Carla Esparza. The pair faced each other back in December 2014 when Esparza came out victorious via submission in the third round. Over seven years later, they are set to run it back but this time with strawweight gold on the line.

In another highly anticipated lightweight matchup, former interim champion Tony Ferguson will take on former Bellator champ Michael Chandler.
