UFC 300 fight card: Confirmed bouts

Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway

If ever a fight had banger written all over it, it’s surely this one.

With Gaethje’s (25-4) “BMF” belt on the line, featherweight great Holloway (25-7) will jump up to 155-pounds to take on “The Highlight” in a fan-friendly barnburner.

Zhang Weili (c) vs. Yan Xiaonan

At least one world title fight will feature on the card in Vegas, with an all-Chinese affair to settle the women’s strawweight championship.

Weili (24-3) is looking to record the second defense of her current title reign when she faces Xiaonan (17-3 (1)).

Charles Oliveira vs. Arman Tsarukyan

Another lightweight potential showstopper, Oliveira (34-9 (1)) and Tsarukyan (21-3), will do battle with a 155-lb title shot on the line.

The Brazilian former champ will look to turn back the challenge of the rising Armenian.

Jiří Procházka vs. Aleksandar Rakić

A high-level light heavyweight clash between Procházka (29-4-1) and Rakić (14-3) has been locked in.

Rakić hasn’t fought since mid-2022, while Procházka is hoping to rebound from his stoppage loss to Alex Pereira.

Calvin Kattar vs. Aljamain Sterling

Former bantamweight champion Sterling (23-4) returns to featheweight for the first time in the UFC, with Kattar (23-7) the man to welcome him to the division.

Can Sterling make another run at the title at 145-lbs?

Deiveson Figueiredo vs. Cody Garbrandt

A pair of former UFC champions meet in this potential firestarter at bantamweight.

Figueiredo (22-3-1) made a winning start to life at bantamweight last time out, while Garbrandt (14-5) is looking to string three wins together for the first time since 2016.

Holly Holm vs. Kayla Harrison

Two-time Olympic gold medalist (Judo) Harrison (16-1) has joined the UFC after establishing her complete MMA credentials as a two-time PFL champion.

In her first UFC fight, she’ll take on fellow women’s combat sports legend Holly Holm (15-6 (1)), a former UFC and boxing champion.

The winner could immediately enter title contention.

Jim Miller vs. Bobby Green

Miller (37-17 (1)) will become the only fighter to have appeared at UFC 100, UFC 200 and UFC 300 when he takes on the always-game Bobby Green (31-15-1 (1)) at lightweight.

Bo Nickal vs. Cody Brundage

Emerging middleweight and former collegiate wrestling start Nickal (5-0) looks to continue his rise up the ranks when he faces Brundage (10-5).

Nickal has been calling out many of the top dogs at 185-lbs and this could be his chance to make a statement on a big card.

Sodiq Yussuf vs. Diego Lopes

Ranked featherweight Yussuf (13-3) will face exciting Brazilian Lopes (23-6) in one of the earlier bouts on the card.

Jéssica Andrade vs. Marina Rodriguez

A UFC veteran of a decade, former strawweight champion Andrade (25-12) snapped a three-fight losing streak last time out and she’ll be looking to build some momentum towards another world title fight when he meets Rodriguez (17-3) in an all-Brazilian affair.

Will Conor McGregor fight at UFC 300?

Nope. While many fans had hoped to see McGregor return at UFC 300, the Irishman won’t be back in time.

Instead, McGregor was reportedly set to face Michael Chandler in International Fight Week in late June.

UFC boss Dana White, however, appeared to pour cold water on that possibility, recently saying: “When Conor is ready to fight, you know we’ll announce it.

“That’s what we’ll do.”
