The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to pay-per-view this weekend with UFC 274 at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the main event, Charles Oliveira took on Justin Gaethje in a thrilling lightweight bout. Oliveira was stripped of his title after missing weight and could not win the title, while a win for Gaethje would have landed him the 155-pound crown. Ultimately, Oliveira choked out Gaethje to become the No. 1 contender and earn a shot at the vacant title.

In the co-main event, Rose Namajunas defends her title against former champion Carla Esparza in what is a rematch of the inaugural UFC women’s strawweight championship bout which crowd Esparza after The Ultimate Fighter season 20 in 2014. For Esparza, it was deja vu with the night ending with her hand raised in victory.

This week, the UFC dropped a sneak peek for its “UFC 274: The Thrill and the Agony” series that gives a behind-the-scenes look of fight night. In the video, we see the reactions and aftermath of the highly-anticipated, highly-discussed bout.
