UFC 274 Live Blog: Blow By Blow Analysis, Highlights, Results

Justin Gaethje will have to overcome Charles Oliveira and musician Drake’s curse at UFC 274 on Saturday as he prays for the lightweight championship.

Oliveira was stripped of the title on Friday after she lost half a pound. Gaethje will earn the title with a win, but if Oliveira wins, the title will be vacant and he will be the number 1 candidate. Oliveira is a -140 favorite at BetMGM with Gaethje coming in at +140.

Drake placed a huge bet on Gaethje and bet $550,000 Canadian on Gaethje to win. The payout is $1.375 million Canadian if Gaethje is successful.

Drake isn’t the best at betting though, so Gaethje should be concerned about that.

Oliveira-Gaethje is one of two title fights on the card, with a women’s strawweight belt rematch between Rose Namajunas and former champion Carla Esparza co-main event.

Yahoo Sports will have full coverage of these fights and everything happening at UFC 274, so keep it here for all the details.
