UFC, the premier MMA promotion globally, has consistently delivered blockbuster events under Dana White’s leadership. The promotion is renowned for satisfying fans’ thirst for thrilling fights, exemplified by successful events like UFC 100 and UFC 200.
Now, fans eagerly anticipate UFC 300, scheduled for April 13, 2024, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Let’s see what UFC CEO Dana White has in store for UFC 300 which at present is without a main event.
Dana White talks on behind-the-scenes discussion on UFC 300
Dana White recently appeared on the Full Send Podcast where he surprised the NELK Boys and the viewers with the behind-the-scenes discussion of the highly anticipated UFC 300. “There are so many twists and turns and crazy going on behind the scenes of UFC 300. It’s unbelievable. Everything that everybody thinks about UFC 300 right now literally could all f*cking change tomorrow,” White said on the podcast.
“So, every fight that’s on the card already could be a main event on either a fight night or a pay-per-view,” White said of the fan-friendly fights on UFC 300. “Right, so we have one more slot to fill, mid-level, and then we have the main event,” White also revealed that he has to add two more fights to the PPV.
“There could end up being two completely different things unless I completely change everything,” White said of what fans can expect as the main event for UFC 300. “There could actually be a documentary right now being shot of behind the scenes to build UFC 300. It’s crazy,” White further added.
Dana White had previously criticized Bob Menery on the podcast for his extravagant $250 million claims. Interestingly, it was Menery who pressured White into revealing details about the highly anticipated UFC 300 PPV.
UFC 300 match card confirmed bouts
As of now, the UFC has announced 11 fights for UFC 300 with two on the way. The co-main event of the PPV has not yet been decided but will either be the BMF title fight between Max Holloway and Justin Gaethje or the strawweight title fight between Yan Xioanan and Zhang Weili.
White recently revealed that the fight card opener is a fight between ex-champions Deivesion Figuerido and Cody Garbrandt. A number one contender lightweight fight between Charles Oliveira and Arman Tsarukyan is also on the PPV.
The UFC recently signed two-time PFL champion Kayla Harrison and she will make her UFC debut against Holly Holm in the bantamweight division. Jiri Prochazka versus Aleksandar Rakic and Aljamain Sterling versus Calvin Kattar are also in the coveted PPV.
Bo Nickal versus Cody Brundage, Sodiq Yusuff versus Diego Lopes, Jessica Andrade versus Marina Rodriguez, and Jim Miller versus Bobby Green rounds up the fight card for UFC 300. The bantamweight fight between Holm and Harrison is expected to be the headliner for the preliminary card.
Dana White recently stated on the Pat McAfee show that Conor McGregor will not fight at UFC 300 and that has left the UFC with a few potential fights. Dricus du Plessis versus Israel Adesanya or Alex Pereira versus Magomed Ankalaev now has the best chance of headlining UFC 300.
