UFC 300 Card Is Stacked!

I know the real ones are super excited about UFC 300.

I’ve grown a patch of strawberry and gray hairs and completed the full life span of a Tamagotchi waiting for a UFC 300 main event announcement. But finally (The Rock voice), Dana White has halted the speculation, and we have some light-heavyweight violence lined up for the marquee event on April 13, 2024.

According to the latest UFC news, the reigning, defending 205-pound champion, Alex ‘Poatan’ Pereira, will take his bad Brazilian self to the UFC 300 main event and make his first title defense versus the former and formidable light-heavyweight titleholder, Jamahal Hill.

Pereira, most known for becoming the first middleweight competitor to dethrone Israel Adesanya, has been on a tear since joining the promotion. One division, though, wasn’t enough, as the product of Teixeira MMA & Fitness moved up a weight class last July to begin his quest to become a two-division champion.

 

 

During his successful and effortless path at 205 pounds, where he starched Jiri Prochazka in the second round to lift a second piece of gold, Jamahal Hill was sidelined due to an injury, had relinquished the belt, and was closely scoping out his new opposition cage side.

Hill, 32, much like Pereira, had a rapid rise to fame filled with knockouts and Fight of the Night contenders. Between these two savages, we’ve witnessed eight knockout victories since 2020, as the UFC 300 main is almost guaranteed to deliver a striking war for the ages!


UFC rumors have been buzzing around this main event, and personally, I believe the UFC 300 card is absolutely stacked, with or without the main event. We have 12 former or current UFC champions alongside twelve scheduled bouts that have enough pull to be a Fight Night or UFC pay-per-view main event in their own right.

However, not everyone has been happy, and I’ll put this down to absolute ignorance of how the business operates and a strong casual fan presence.


One fan on X wrote: “This… Kinda sucks.”

Another fan posted: “That’s not main event 300 worthy, Dana.”

And the funniest comment I saw read: “I speak for all UFC fans when I say UFC 300 is average as f*ck.”


Sorry, but if anyone believes – UFC 100 & 200 stars – Miesha Tate, Amanda Nunes, Brock Lesnar, Mark Hunt, Frank Mir, Jon Fitch, or Paulo Thiago can even be placed in the same conversation as the UFC 300 headliners (even some of the preliminary bouts), you’re living in a dream world.

I genuinely believe a large collection of fans would’ve hated the outcome either way simply because their expectations are unrealistic and ridiculous. No, Khabib isn’t coming out of retirement, and no, the UFC isn’t going to place McGregor on a card that will already break records when the Irishman can break records on an event by himself… Wake up, please.

All in all, I know the real ones are super excited about UFC 300, and for the rest, stop the hate and appreciate one of the, if not THE most, talent-stacked events in MMA history.
