UFC 300: Alex Pereira vs Jamahal Hill background

After a lot of speculation and anticipation, Dana White finally announced the main event of the ambitious pay-per-view and it was Alex Pereira going for his first title defense against the former light heavyweight champion, Jamahal Hill. The fight is as exciting as it could get and that's not all. The main card too is one of the most stacked the promotion has ever seen.

It will feature the likes of Bo Nickal, Max Holloway, Justin Gaethje, Charles Oliveira, Arman Tsarukyan, alongside the co-main event for the strawweight belt between Yan Xiaonan and the reigning champion Weili Zhang. Clearly, a main card not to be missed.

UFC 300 rumors featuring Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov

UFC 300 is not just another UFC event, it is a landmark of the company’s success. Every official inside the UFC office is trying to make this event the biggest yet! In such a scenario, rumors about the sport’s biggest stars Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov are completely unsurprising.

For a long time, fans were expecting ‘The Notorious’ to make his return at this event. Even the former double-champ himself wanted to headline this PPV. Unfortuanately, this isn’t happening for now, as Conor McGregor is probably coming back in June. The star has recently confirmed a return for the coming Summer.

On the other hand, rumors about Khabib Nurmagomedov’s return to the octagon also started to catch fire recently. All this happened after his coach informed the world about Nurmagomedov’s return to training. However, it is now clear to everyone that 'The Eagle' too isn't anywhere close to making a comeback to professional MMA. At least not at UFC 300.
