NFL Draft is coming up!
After a wild start to 2024, things are about to get kicked up a notch. UFC 300 is getting closer after the conclusion of UFC 299 in Miami and the promotion is pulling out all the stops to mark this special occasion. The event, set for April 13 in Las Vegas, will feature 12 current or former champions as well as a former two-time Olympic gold medalist and a standout collegiate wrestler.
The main event sees the return of UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira as he looks to make his first defense of the crown against former titleholder Jamahal Hill. Pereira earned the the title in November with a knockout of Jiri Prochazka. Hill was forced to vacate the title last year after suffering a torn Achilles while playing basketball.
Also on the main card is an All-China throwdown when women’s strawweight champion Weili Zhang takes on Yan Xiaonan. Zhang earned her title back after a throttling of Carla Esparza. She has defended it once since with a beatdown of Amanda Lemos last August. Xiaonan, meanwhile, earned the opportunity with a TKO of Jessica Andrade last May.
Plus, the ceremonial “BMF” title is up for grabs once again when “champion” Justin Gaethje takes on former featherweight king Max Holloway. Gaethje earned the crown with a vicious head-kick KO of Dustin Poirier last July. Holloway got back on the winning track by retiring the Korean Zombie last August.
That’s just the top three bouts on the card. Seven former champions, countless rising prospects and a veteran looking to make history all litter the undercard with fights fans will be glued to. As Dana White said, this is going to be an event fans will be watching and say “that’s on the early prelims?”
