The UFC returns to Arizona on Saturday for its fifth pay-per-view of the year, which means the “Embedded” fight-week video series is back to document what’s happening behind the scenes.
UFC 274 takes place at Footprint Center in Phoenix. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and early prelims on ESPN+.
UFC 274 features a title-fight doubleheader. In the main event, Charles Oliveira (32-8 MMA, 20-8 UFC) is set to put his lightweight title on the line against Justin Gaethje (23-3 MMA, 6-3 UFC).
The co-main event will see women’s strawweight titleholder Rose Namajunas (11-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) meet top contender Carla Esparza (18-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) in rematch over seven years after their first meeting won by Esparza.
Additionally, former title challenger Tony Ferguson (25-6 MMA, 15-4 UFC) takes on former Bellator champion Michael Chandler (22-7 MMA, 1-2 UFC) in a pivotal lightweight fight.
The second episode of “Embedded” follows the featured fighters while they get ready for fight week. Here is the UFC’s description of the episode from YouTube:
Justin Gaethje checks in to his home away from home then hits the links. Michael Chandler wraps up camp with Gilbert Burns and Kamaru Usman. Carla Esparza plans to reclaim the belt. Champ Rose Namajunas heads to Phoenix. UFC 274 is on Saturday, May 7.
