UFC CEO Dana White has admitted that he’s been having a hard time booking a headliner for the promotion’s most important show of 2024. He’s got the main event and co-main event left to figure it out. While the card has shaped up quite nicely, there is pressure to ensure there is a main event worthy of UFC 300.

Chael Sonnen is once again playing the blame game on fighters.


Chael Sonnen Blames Fighters For Not Steeping Up For UFC 300

In a post on his X account, Sonnen reacted to Dana White admitting the struggles of booking a headliner for UFC 300. This prompted Sonnen to once again go to bat for the UFC while downing other fighters.

“Translation- I have a whole bunch of guys under contract who told me from the day before I signed them that they would like the biggest opportunities possible and that they’ll fight anybody. Turns out my biggest event of all time was excluded and when they said they would fight anybody they meant, anybody they deem weak.”

UFC 300 will be held inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 13. Already booked for the card is a UFC Strawweight Championship match between titleholder Zhang Weili and Yan Xiaonan. Fans will also get to witness the third BMF Championship fight as Justin Gaethje defends against featherweight royalty Max Holloway in a 155-pound clash. There will also be a number one contender bout in the lightweight division when Charles Oliveira takes on Arman Tsarukyan.

There are plenty of other potential bangers on tap such as former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka taking on Aleksander Rakic. We’ll also get to see former UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling take on Calvin Kattar.

Keep it locked on for the latest updates on the UFC 300 main event.
