We’re talking title fights, grudge matches, and everything in between. In a night packed with potential Fight of the Year candidates let’s get to talking about what the main card has in store.

 

Jamahal Hill (+115) vs Alex Pereira (-145)

In a fight that has everything to be deemed a fight of the year candidate, reigning light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira will defend his title against Jamahal Hill in the UFC 300 main event!

Pereira, hailing from Brazil and fighting out of Bethel, Connecticut, has been on an absolute tear lately. With a 9-2-0 record and four wins in his last five fights, including a stunning KO/TKO victory over Jiri Prochazka to capture the title at UFC 295 in November 2023, this kickboxing specialist is a force to be reckoned with.

Standing 6’4″ tall, weighing in at a chiseled 204.0 lbs, and boasting an impressive 80.0″ reach, Pereira is the clear favorite to retain the gold heading into this fight, with odds of -145.

Jamahal, the Michigan-based mixed martial artist has been making waves in the light heavyweight division, racking up a 12-1-0 record and four consecutive wins in his last five fights. His crowning achievement came at UFC 283 in January 2023, where he defeated Glover Texeira via unanimous decision to capture the title.

At 6’4″ tall, with a 79.0″ reach and weighing in at 204.5 lbs, Hill is a physical specimen who can go toe-to-toe with anyone in the division. And with odds of +115, he’s definitely not a man sleeping on.

Xiaonan Yan (+280) vs Weili Zhang (-380)

Get ready for an epic strawweight championship showdown, as Zhang Weili is set to defend her title against fellow Chinese sensation

Yan Xiaonan in the co-main event of UFC 300! Zhang, the reigning queen of the 115-pound division, has been on an absolute tear lately. Fighting out of Las Vegas, Nevada, this Muay Thai and striking specialist boasts a 24-3-0 record, with three wins in her last five fights. She captured the strawweight crown by submitting Carla Esparza at UFC 281 and then successfully defended it against Amanda Lemos at UFC 292 in August 2023.

Standing 5’4″ tall, with a 63.0″ reach and weighing in at a chiseled 115.0 lbs, Zhang is a force to be reckoned with in the octagon. And with -380 odds in her favor, she’s the clear favorite heading into this one.

But don’t sleep on Yan Xiaonan! This Sacramento, California-based striker has been making waves in the strawweight division, racking up a 17-3-0 record and three wins in her last five fights.

She’s riding a two-fight winning streak, with impressive victories over Mckenzie Dern in the main event of UFC Fight Night in October 2022 and Jessica Andrade at UFC 288 in May 2023.

At 5’5″ tall, with a 63.0″ reach and weighing in at a matching 115.0 lbs, Yan is a mirror image of Zhang in terms of physical attributes. But with her pure striking style and +280 odds, she’s the clear underdog in this matchup.

 

Max Holloway (+180) vs Justin Gaethje (-220)

In the third fight on the UFC 300 main card, in one corner, we’ve got Justin “The Highlight” Gaethje, a man who needs no introduction. With a 25-4-0 record and a reputation for putting on some of the most exciting fights in UFC history, Gaethje is a stud when it comes to octagon fighting. In his last five fights, he’s scored three wins and suffered two losses, but his most recent outing was a thing of beauty.

At UFC 291: “Poirier vs Gaethje 2,” he absolutely demolished Dustin Poirier with a jaw-dropping KO/TKO in the main event. Fighting out of Greeley, Colorado, Gaethje weighs in at a lean 156.0 lbs, stands 5’11” tall, and boasts a 70.0″ reach. With his explosive striking style and -220 odds, “The Highlight” is definitely the favorite going into this one.

In the other corner, we’ve got Max “Blessed” Holloway, a man who’s no stranger to the big stage. With a 25-7-0 record and four wins in his last five fights, Holloway is a seasoned veteran who knows how to get the job done. In his most recent victory he scored a stunning KO/TKO win against Chan Sung Jun.

Fighting out of Waianae, Hawaii, Holloway brings his own brand of striking excellence to the octagon. Weighing in at a featherweight-friendly 146.0 lbs, standing 5’11” tall, and with a 69.0″ reach, “Blessed” is a formidable opponent for anyone. And with +180 odds, he might be an enticing underdog to keep an eye on.

 

Charles Oliveira (+200) vs Arman Tsarukyan (-250)

Following up the action in the UFC 300 main card, the second fight of the night will be a showdown between Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira and Arman “Ahalkalakets” Tsarukyan.

Oliveira, the former king of the 155-pound division, and underdog in this fight at +200 odds is set on reclaiming his throne. Fighting out of Sao Paulo, Brazil, this submission specialist boasts an impressive 34-9-0 record, with four wins in his last five fights.

Despite losing his title to current champ Islam Makhachev via submission at UFC 280 in October 2022, Oliveira bounced back with a jaw-dropping KO/TKO victory against Beneil Dariush at UFC 289 in July 2023. With a weight of 154 lbs, a height of 5’10”, and a 74.0″ reach, “Do Bronx” is a force to be reckoned with on the ground, thanks to his elite Brazilian Jiu Jitsu skills.

But standing in his way is the surging contender Arman Tsarukyan, the clear cut favorite to win at -250 odds, who’s been tearing through the lightweight ranks with a vengeance. Hailing from Russia and holding a 21-3-0 record, Tsarukyan has won four of his last five fights, including a stunning three-fight winning streak.

His most recent triumph came against none other than Beneil Dariush in the main event of the December 2, 2023 UFC Fight Night Event. At 5’7″ with a 72.5″ reach and weighing in at 155.5 lbs, Tsarukyan is a well-rounded mixed martial artist who can hold his own against anyone in the division.

 

Bo Nickal (-3000) vs Cody Brundage (+1000)

Bo Nickal, the rising star from State College, Pennsylvania, is set to face off against the gritty veteran Cody Brundage in a middleweight bout in the first fight of the UFC 300 main card.

Nickal, standing tall at 6’1″ with a 76.0″ reach and weighing in at a chiseled 186 lbs, is riding high on a perfect 5-0-0 record. Fresh off a stunning first-round KO/TKO victory against Val Woodburn at UFC 290 in July 2023, Nickal is looking to keep his unbeaten streak alive and prove he’s the real deal. With his elite wrestling pedigree and a whopping -3000 odds in his favor, Nickal is the heavy favorite to come out on top.

Fighting out of Englewood, California, Brundage boasts a 10-5-0 record and is on a hot streak of his own, having won his last two fights in impressive fashion. At 6’0″ with a 72.0″ reach and weighing in at a lean 185 lbs, Brundage is no slouch in the wrestling department either.

He’s coming off a jaw-dropping KO/TKO victory against Zachary Reese at UFC Fight Night in December 2023 and is hungry to make it three in a row. With +1000 odds, Brundage is the underdog, but we all know that anything can happen when two elite grapplers go head to head in the octagon.
