As UFC 300 draws closer, the list of big name fighters that are throwing their hats into the ring for a possible spot on the card is growing rapidly.
The organization’s monumental 300th event is set to take place on April 13, 2024, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. No matches have been officially announced, but UFC CEO Dana White has been quite open in saying that there are big things in the works.

Back in March, Grasso defeated former dominant champion Valentina Shevchenko (23-4-1) with a constricting rear naked choke to claim her seat atop the division. Six months later, Grasso retained her title when the pair fought to a draw in the championship rematch.
Currently riding a three fight win streak, Weili has recent finishes over former champions Joanna Jędrzejczyk and Carla Esparza. Additionally, she retained her title back in August with a unanimous decision victory over Amanda Lemos (13-3-1) in the co-main event at UFC 292.
Both women are currently at the top of their game, and a champion versus champion super fight at UFC 300 would only add to the spectacle of the event. Of course, this is in no way official yet, but the fighters are interested in making it happen, which is a big step in the right direction.
