Matched up! Who has the better lineup, UFC 299 or UFC 300?

By Harry Kettle - February 22, 2024

The Ultimate Fighting Championship has two major PPVs coming up – UFC 299 and UFC 300. But which is better?

Dana White and UFC 300

Over the years, the UFC has established itself as the leading promotion in mixed martial arts. We’ve all known that to be the case for a long time, but it’s always nice when they remind us with some blockbuster events. Thankfully for casual and hardcore fans alike, we have two huge pay-per-views coming up in March and April.

They both have title fights, they both have number one contender contests, and they both feature a lot of big names. Of course, as is the nature of the MMA community, they’ve come under scrutiny with some wondering whether or not 299 is going to upstage 300.

Today, we’ve decided to list both cards so that you can decide for yourself. Disclaimer: we’re expecting one or two more fights to arrive for 300 in the coming weeks.
