UFC 300: Pereira vs. Hill Live Results and Analysis

UFC 300 is here. The greatest card ever assembled.

Alex Pereira put his light heavyweight title on the line against Jamahal Hill in the main event. The fight is announced as the latest in a loaded card that promises to be an entertaining clash of 12 current and former UFC champions and strikers. Pereira is 9-1 with 7 KO wins in his last 10 fights, including seven in the UFC. Hill is 8-1 in his last 10 fights with 1 no contest. Six of those eight wins came via KO.

In the co-main event, for the first time in UFC history, two fighters from China meet for a world championship. Zhang Weily, the titleholder who came off the back of a first-round knockout of Jessica Andrade at UFC 288 last May, faces Yan Cheonen.

Friends-turned-rivals Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway will battle it out for the BMF title, which, while not a “true” championship bout, could steal the show. Both Gaethje and Holloway have fan-friendly styles and are two very entertaining fighters to watch when they step into the Octagon.

Before that, former lightweight champion Charles Oliveira faces Arman Sarukian, who is 8-2 since joining the UFC in nearly five years. Oliveira is a 32-fight veteran in the UFC. He won the title with a KO victory over Michael Chandler at UFC 262 and had two defense wins against Dustin Poirier at UFC 269 and Justin Gaethje at UFC 274.

In the prelims, Kayla Harrison made her UFC debut against former champion Holly Holm in a bantamweight fight. Harrison, a two-time gold medalist in judo for the United States in 2012 and 2016, is slightly favored over Holm, a former boxer and amateur kickboxing champion. The winner could next challenge Raquel Pennington for the 135-pound belt.
