For the first time in UFC history, a champion lost his belt on the scales. The Brazilian Charles "do Bronx" Oliveira fails to make weight and was striped off the lightweight title.
The title is now vacant, but Charles will still face Gaethje in the main event of UFC 274. Only the challenger Justin Gaethje can now get the lightweight belt with a victory, because if Charles wins, the title will remain vacant... or might we have to announce the scales as the new UFC champion? 🤣
