Charles Oliveira was once stripped of the UFC light-weight identify and was once not able to regain it in the principle tournament of UFC 274 on Saturday night time after failing to shed extra pounds.
Noting that Oliveira was once in a position to drop part a pound in an hour on Friday, it introduced the burden down from 155.5 kilos to the desired most weight restrict of 155 kilos.
The UFC showed that the identify was once vacated in an instant, leaving challenger Justin Gaethje the one fighter to win the light-weight identify on Saturday.
Oliveira has gained 10 fights in a row at light-weight, but when she wins that struggle, which is decided irrespective of her weight, she is not going to transform a champion and the identify will stay vacant.
In UFC identify fights, there’s typically no pound surcharge for non-championship fights, even if that is an unparalleled rule in UFC historical past.
