UFC continues to deliver on its promise of action fights. The promotion has rolled through the early part of 2022 with four PPVs already in the books. Interestingly, only one title has changed hands in that time with Deiveson Figueiredo topping Brandon Moreno in their trilogy to regain the championship.
Now, UFC rolls through the rest of spring with a loaded up schedule of events and a couple of PPV main events already on the books for May and June. UFC 274 in May will see a pair of titles on the line when lightweight champion Charles Oliveira looks to defend his crown against fan-favorite Justin Gaethje. Plus, women’s strawweight champion Rose Namajunas runs back a rematch eight years in the making when she takes on former champion Carla Esparza. Esparza beat Namajunas for the inaugural title in 2014.

But before we get to May, there’s still two more cards on tap in April. A women’s flyweight showdown headlines on April 23 when Amanda Lemos takes on former strawweight champion Jessica Andrade. Lemos has won five in a row since dropping her promotional debut in 2017. Andrade bounced back from her title loss to Valentina Shevchenko with a nice win over Cynthia Calvillo last September.
