It's time for a celebration of sorts. UFC is set to mark a milestone number of PPV events on Saturday night in Las Vegas with UFC 300 set for the T-Mobile Arena.







After giant successes with their 100 and 200 events, UFC went all out to make sure that Saturday is one for the books. The card features two recognized title fights along with the ceremonial "BMF" title at stake. Plus, the undercard fills out with many former champions, a few rising prospects and a two-time Olympic gold medalist making her promotional debut.

Date: April 13
Location: T-Mobile Arena -- Las Vegas
Start time: 10 p.m. ET (Main card) 
How to watch: ESPN+ PPV

The main event sees the return of UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira as he looks to make his first defense of the crown against former titleholder Jamahal Hill. Pereira earned the the title in November with a knockout of Jiri Prochazka. Hill was forced to vacate the title last year after suffering a torn Achilles while playing basketball.

The other recognized title bout on the card sees women's strawweight champion Zhang Weili defend her belt against her countrywoman Yan Xiaonan in the co-main event. Weili has won three straight while reclaiming her title along the way. Xianoan, meanwhile, has picked up back-to-back wins, including a knockout of former champion Jessica Andrade.

The rest of the undercard features some incredible names looking to make a statement. Look no further than the "BMF" title fight between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway set to be contested at lightweight. Gaethje won the ceremonial belt with a knockout of Dustin Poirier last July. Holloway, the former featherweight champion, is coming off a TKO of Chan Sung Jung in August. Elsewhere, another pair of lightweights look to make an impression on current titleholder Islam Makhachev when Charles Oliveira takes on Arman Tsarukyan. Oliveira, the former champion, was expected to fight Makhachev in October, but suffered an injury in training camp. His last appearance was a vicious finish of Beneil Dariush in June 2023. Tsarukyan, meanwhile, scored a pair of knockouts in 2023 as well, including one of Dariush and one of Joaquim Silva.

"I just want to make a case that I should be that guy," Gaethje told CBS Sports ahead of his ceremonial BMF title defense. "I think in a perfect scenario they're calling Oliveira vs. Tsarukyan a title eliminator, so the winner fights him next in June or July. And then I fight the winner of that fight in November in Madison Square Garden. That's what I'm trying to speak into reality."
