UFC 274 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 274 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 274 (on May 7, 2022) is a blockbuster card that looks to deliver fireworks. In the main event, Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira will take on Justin Gaethje. After some controversy at the scale, the champion Oliveira will relinquish the belt as soon as he sets food in the octagon. Only the challenger Gaethje will have the opportunity to win the title. Gaethje is coming off a “Fight of the Year” candidate performance vs Michael Chandler while Oliveira most recently defended his title against Dustin “The Diamond” Poirier. In the co-main event, we get a rematch between Carla Esparza and “Thug” Rose Namajunas. Esparza won the inaugural strawweight title way back in 2014 when she defeated Namajunas in their first encounter. A lot has changed since then and its now Thug Rose looking to defend the title. A potential barnburner between Chandler and Tony Ferguson also highlights this jam packed card.

Odds: Oliveira is a slight favorite against Gaethje at -175 at BetUS
