A look at the UFC 300 battle card and rumors: Kayla Harrison’s stunning performance deals a big blow to the PFL

The promotion expects a great lineup for UFC 300, its historic April event. The countdown for UFC 300 has begun, so only time will tell. She will be put up against an earlier UFC and boxing champion.

The UFC will hold UFC 300 in Las Vegas on April 13. This is after one of the most up-and-down years in recent memory. Dana White, the CEO of the UFC, has promised to put together the strongest and most uncertain lineups in the history of the company.

The main act for UFC 300 is almost here. A healthy letter with a surprise was announced. A historic event is coming up, and the UFC is working hard to put together a card that fits the event.

Holly Holm vs. Kayla Harrison, a surprise signing from the PFL, was the latest major addition to UFC 300. Harrison has won two gold medals at the Olympics and two PFL tournaments.

The fight between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway to retain the ceremonial BMF title is also a big one. Gaethje earned the title by knocking out Dustin Poirier with a vicious groin kick in 2022.

Holloway moves up to lightweight for the first time since 2018, when he tried to defend his interim title against Poirier but failed. He’s lost all three of his fights since then, all to Alexander Volkanovski, the featherweight champion.

In other news, Zhang Weili will defend her UFC women’s strawweight title against Yan Xiaonan, another Chinese star.

Also, former UFC portable champion Charles Oliveira will fight rising star Arman Tsarukyan in a title eliminator.

Jiri Prochazka, Bo Nickal, and Aljamain Sterling, who is making his featherweight debut, are some of the other well-known fighters on the card. Also, Deiveson Figueiredo and Cody Garbrandt, two former champions, meet.

There won’t be any returning stars such as Ronda Rousey and Brock Lesnar at UFC 300, but Dana White did say there could be surprises, and he has now done just that.

The card features numerous current or former champions, with each matchup being deemed crucial within its respective division. There may not be a main event on April 13, even though the card is one of the best ever put together.

Dana White used social media to say that she had signed PFL star Kayla Harrison. The judo champion from two Olympics is going to fight Holly Holm, who used to be the women’s bantamweight champion. This fight could decide who wins the title.

“This is another alert for UFC 300. I added Holly Holm to the Boxing Hall of Fame in 2022,” White said. “In the history of the women’s welterweight division, she is tied for the fourth-most wins, the sixth-highest number of strikes landed, and possesses the fourth-best takedown defense at 78%.”

This is Holly’s first fight against the sole individual in US history who won back-to-back Olympic gold medals in judo. The UFC has officially signed Kayla Harrison.

Kayla Harrison has a 16-1 record and 12 finishes. The way she takes people down and hits them is very rough. She has never fought before in this weight class (bantamweight).

The Olympian has spent most of her career at lightweight, but at UFC 300, she will be moving down an amazing two weight classes.

Kayla Harrison is one of the best and most powerful women in mixed martial arts right now, even though she lost to Larissa Pacheco by unanimous decision in 2022.

Not even the best women in the PFL have been able to handle her wrestling. If she turns in another great performance toward Holly Holm at the UFC 300, she could be right up there with Raquel Pennington for the newly acquired 135-pound title.
