UFC 274 will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Charles Oliveira and top contender Justin Gaethje, a long-time teammate of Namajunas.
Rose Namajunas will defend her belt against Carla Esparza in the co-main event. Esparza beat Namajunas via third-round submission in December 2014 in the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight title fight. Nearly eight years later, the two women will meet again, with Namajunas as champion.
