UFC 274 Fight Card: Who’s Fighting Tonight?

Image used with permission by copyright holder

This evening, in Phoenix, Arizona, 30 fighters are entering the Octagon at UFC 274 and bringing MMA fans around the world a fully packed night of bloody entertainment with two championship bouts highlighting kicking off the month with a big UFC pay-per-view event. UFC 274 is one of the largest and most highly anticipated MMA shows of the year so far, and if you’re looking to watch it live, then you can sign up for ESPN+ and grab the pay-per-view for a discount. Then, read on to see what you can expect tonight.

As with most UFC pay-per-view events, UFC 274 has its fights divided across three cards: The early prelims, prelims, and the main event, and they take place in that order. Numbered UFC fight cards like this typically have between 12 and 14 bouts, but UFC 274 is delivering a long night of fierce combat with 15 matchups on deck. Because of this, the early preliminary card starts at 5:30 p.m. ET (2:30 p.m. PT), which is a little earlier than usual.

The main event is a lightweight championship bout between reigning champ Charles Oliveira (32-8) and challenger Justin Gaethje (24-3). This will be the champion’s second title defense since winning the gold at UFC 262 following the retirement of Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Gaethje’s second title challenge since his first unsuccessful bid against Khabib at UFC 254. This match will be preceded by the co-headliner, which pits two-time UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Rose Namajunas (12-4) against former champ Carla Esparza (19-6).

The co-main event is particularly interesting because these female fighters both made their debut at the finale of The Ultimate Fighter 20, where Ezparza submitted Namajunas to take home the inaugural UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship. The two have not fought since, but “Thug Rose” would go on to win, lose, then reclaim that strawweight title, so this is a championship rematch that’s almost eight years in the making.

Other noteworthy talent on the UFC 274 main card includes Tony Ferguson, former Bellator champion Michael Chandler, and Donald Cerrone, so there’s a lot to look forward to tonight. You can check out the full UFC 274 fight card below, then be sure to sign up for ESPN+ and grab the pay-per-view so you can watch UFC 247 online live. Barring any last-minute changes (which happen often with UFC events), this is the lineup you can expect to see. The action begins with the early prelims at 5:30 p.m. ET; the main event starts at 10 p.m.

The 11 best Ryan Reynolds movies – Deadpool, Buried, and more
As a Ryan Reynolds fan, you must see all of his top films listed here
Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool in Deadpool and Wolverine.

"I don’t expect success. I prepare for it." Wise and self-fulfilling words from our guy, Ryan Reynolds, one of Canada’s sweethearts. Born in Vancouver, British Columbia, Reynolds dreamed of getting out of there early in his life, not to abandon his family or hometown, but to act. True to his words, he and a fellow Vancouver actor impulsively took to the road one night with one destination: Los Angeles. After taking the first step in following his dreams, his car was stripped and robbed on his first night in L.A. Did that stop our fearless protagonist? Indeed not. After just a few months, Reynolds was landing roles all over town, working whenever he could. Five years later, he finally got a leading role with a recognizable name, a college comedy called Van Wilder: Party Liaison. That movie didn’t make our list today, but it's only because Reynolds has been busy making an array of better movies ever since.
Most would agree that Ryan Reynolds brings a familiar presence in both appearance and demeanor to most of his films, but when you get a frame that fits just right, you get some great Ryan Reynolds features. That is why we’ve compiled a list of the best Ryan Reynolds movies. It should also be known that these movies were chosen for the movie quality and watchability, not just for the most Ryan of the Reynolds’ performances.
