Who’s ‘scared-cited’ for UFC 274???

Dueling title fights are on tap for Saturday’s UFC 274. In the lightweight championship scrap, both Charles Oliveira and Justin Gaethje will no doubt choose violence — it’s just a matter of exactly how and what kind. Plus, Carla Esparza has a chance to shatter the record for longest stints between UFC title reigns if she can beat Rose Namajunas for strawweight gold. Kinda hard to imagine that happening though, right? Also, are we more excited or scared for Michael Chandler vs. Tony Ferguson? Scared-cited?
