UFC 300 will likely be the biggest UFC card in recent memory if Dana White gets his way. The 300th PPV will take place on April 13 in Las Vegas, NV, and is very slowly coming together.
No main event for the card has been announced yet, but three other fights were recently revealed by White.
“What everybody has been waiting for. No main events or anything like that but I will tell you April 13th, UFC 300, No. 2 ranked Jiri Prochazka vs No. 5 ranked Aleksander Rakic," White said on social media. “Former bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling moves up to featherweight to face No. 7-ranked Calvin Kattar. And the return of Bo Nickal. He’s got five wins, all coming by finish, he’s 5-0 and he is taking on Cody Brundage."
White has teased major fights for the card, and many have speculated that Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler could be the fight to make but with the unpredictability of McGregor, no one is holding their breath.
White returned from vacation in early January to announce another banger of a fight for UFC 300. Former champion Charles Oliveira will take on rising star Arman Tsarukyan in a No. 1 contender fight. White says the winner of that fight will compete against the champion, Islam Makhachev next.
On Jan. 10, White announced a historic title fight between Zhang Weili and Yan Xiaonan. The fight will be the first time two Chinese athletes fought of a UFC title.
On Jan. 16, White announced two more match-ups for the card, but still no main event.
Jim Miller vs. Bobby Green and Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway for the BMF title at lightweight.

UFC 300 rumors
Is Conor McGregor fighting at UFC 300?
Conor McGregor will probably not end up on UFC 300 as he's recently announced he'll fight Michael Chandler during UFC International Fight Week in June. The fight isn't confirmed, but it's after UFC 300 and we can't see him fighting any earlier than he's announced himself.
“Ladies and gentlemen, a Happy New Year to you all,” McGregor said. “I’d like to announce the return date for myself, the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor, the greatest comeback of all time will take place in Las Vegas for International Fight Week, June the 29th... and the opponent, Michael Chandler. And the weight, Mr. Chandler, 185 pounds.”
Is Leon Edwards fighting at UFC 300?
Leon Edwards said he's fighting at UFC 300, though he didn't say who or if it would be for the main event.
"I will defend my belt in April at UFC 300 in Vegas again, then hopefully in the summertime get a fight back home in Birmingham at Villa Park," he said (h/t The Mirror for the transcription). "I'm in talks with the UFC, so hopefully we can get it done."
Is Giga Chikadze fighting at UFC 300?
Giga Chikadze and Josh Emmett were supposed to fight at UFC 296, but an injury forced Chikadze out of the bout. After Bryce Mitchell stepped in (and was brutally knocked out) Chikadze called out Emmett for UFC 300.
"Josh! You beat the guy coming off the couch, working with the cows in the farm. Accept UFC’s offer for UFC 300, I already said YES!
I’ll do to you what you did to him!"
