This event marks a significant milestone for the UFC, celebrating its 300th numbered event with a fight that promises fireworks.

The BMF title, first introduced at UFC 244, has become a symbol of grit, determination, and undeniable skill within the UFC. Originally awarded to Jorge Masvidal after his victory over Nate Diaz, the title is not just a belt but a statement. It’s reserved for fighters who embody the spirit of a warrior, those who are admired for their toughness and willingness to engage in the most challenging fights. Masvidal, known for his striking prowess and street fighter persona, set the tone for what it means to hold the BMF title.

With his striking accuracy, formidable power, and a never-say-die attitude, Gaethje has proven time and again that he’s among the elite in the lightweight division. His recent knockout victories have only added to his reputation as one of the most exciting fighters to watch.

Max Holloway, on the other hand, has established himself as one of the greatest featherweights in UFC history. Known for his incredible cardio, volume striking, and tactical acumen, Holloway has faced and overcome some of the toughest opponents in the division. Moving up to challenge for the BMF title, he brings a skill set that promises to test Gaethje's defenses and perhaps push the fight to its limits.

The build-up to this fight has been intense, with both fighters expressing mutual respect for each other’s abilities while confidently asserting their own. The stylistic matchup is intriguing—Gaethje's power and aggression versus Holloway's precision and endurance. Fans can expect a strategic battle, with each fighter looking to impose their game plan and dominate the octagon.

The BMF title adds an extra layer of prestige to the event, ensuring that the fighters are not just competing for a win but for a legacy. This fight isn't just about holding a belt; it's about proving who is the baddest in the game.

UFC President Dana White has promised that UFC 300 will be an event to remember, filled with high stakes and high drama, the question on everyone’s mind is: who will emerge as the ultimate BMF when Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway go head to head in the octagon? The world will be watching.
