Watch the UFC 274 live stream tonight to experience a display that was virtually exactly what we were supposed to anticipate. There are two major championship bouts at the top of the event — Charles Oliveira vs. Justin Gaethje and Rose Namajunas vs. Carla Esparza — but Chandler vs. Ferguson is also worth seeing. But what about the big event?
TIME AND DATE OF UFC 274
UFC 274 will take place today (Saturday, May 7)
• Main card of UFC 274: 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT/3 a.m. BST

However, Charles Oliveira’s UFC lightweight belt has been revoked when he failed to make weight once again. Gaethje will be the next champion if he wins. What if Oliveira triumphs? After that, the belt is removed.
Only in that it has taken over seven years for Namajunas and Esparza to fight again. After a season of shooting The Ultimate Fighter together, Esparza (the then-veteran) tapped out the rising Namajunas in 2014, halting her momentum. Namajunas is now the champion of the women’s strawweight category, which was founded when they first fought. She has also won two times. Esparza? She has a five-fight winning streak.
The outcome of Michael Chandler vs. Tony Ferguson is crucial for the lightweight division. Both had lost their prior battles and will be looking to comeback in this one.
Oliveira is a little favorite at -135 (wager $135 to win $100) on DraftKings, down from -165 earlier this week, while Gaethje is a tiny underdog at +115 (wager $100 to win $115), which is closer than the +145 line earlier this week. Namajunas is a -210 favorite to win (as opposed to Esparza’s +175), while Chandler is a -365 favorite to win (as opposed to Ferguson’s +280).
