Oliveira is seeking his second successful defense, coming off the heels of a dominant submission victory against top contender Dustin Poirier at UFC 269 in December.
Gaethje is coming off – what many dub as — 2021’s Fight of the Year, which was against Michael Chandler at UFC 268 in November. While Gaethje won via unanimous decision, he clearly chipped away at Chandler for the win.
Namajunas is also going into May 7 with a superb split decision victory against Zhang Weili.
In December 2014, Esparza met Namajunas in the Ultimate Fighter 20 finals where Esparza won by third-round submission. She began the UFC’s inaugural strawweight champion.
Since then, Namajunas has won the belt two times.
UFC 274 takes place May 7 on pay-per-view.
