Brazilian fighter Charles Oliveira failed the weigh-in before the fight with the American Dustin Gaethje at the UFC 274 tournament.
The weight of 32-year-old Oliveira exceeded the norm by 0.200 kg. The Brazilian was stripped of his UFC lightweight title.
The fight between Oliveira and Gaethje will take place on the night of May 8 in Phoenix. The belt will be at stake only for Geydzhi. If Oliveira wins, the title will become vacant.
Oliveira won the UFC lightweight title in May 2021 against American Michael Chandler and then successfully defended the title against American Dustin Poirier in December.
