Charles Oliveira, Justin Gaethje Meet In Face Off Ahead Of UFC 274
Charles Oliveira is making his second title defense tomorrow.
Oliveira went face-to-face with his opponent, Justin Gaethje, for the first time at Thursday’s pre-fight press conference. The two will be featured at UFC 274’s main event.
Oliveira heads into Saturday night with a successful first title defense against Dustin Poirier, who he submitted in the third round of UFC 269 in December. Before that he won the vacant title over Michael Chandler by KO/TKO in the second round.
Oliveira finally won the strap after being with the promotion for 11 years.
Gaethje is contesting for the lightweight title for a second time.
The first was back in October 2020 when he lost by submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov. The title became vacant after Nurmagomedov retired and relinquished the title that he had for two years.
