UFC 274 start time — Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje: Live stream, fight card, prelims, PPV price, TV

UFC 274 is looking to overdeliver on all-action fights on Saturday night. Dana White and company arrive at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona for a pay-per-view card that features two title fights, a showdown of fan-friendly veterans and plenty of combatants who deal in violence.

Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje are prolific bonus hunters with 19 performance bonuses and nine Fight of the Nights between them. Shockingly, Oliveira missed weight on Friday and will be stripped of his UFC lightweight championship. Only Gaethje will be eligible to leave the Octagon as UFC lightweight champion.

UFC strawweight champion Rose Namajunas is a prolific rematch specialist, winning three career rematches (and five of six fights overall) against Zhang Weili, Jessica Andrade and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. A sniper-like finisher, Namajunas has the opportunity to extend that unique record to four against title challenger Carla Esparza, the woman who defeated her for the inaugural UFC strawweight title in 2014.

The undercard also features some potential contenders in the lightweight division when Michael Chandler takes on Tony Ferguson. Chandler, who is coming off a pair of losses to both fighters in the main event, is in desperate need of a rebound against Ferguson if he wants to succeed in one day being able to claim championships in both Bellator MMA and UFC. Ferguson, meanwhile, is just as desperate after three straight sound defeats.

Unfortunately, the scheduled bout between Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Joe Lauzon was canceled just hours before it was set to happen after Cerrone fell ill. A welterweight contest between Khaos Williams and Randy Brown will instead kick off the PPV festivities.
