Alex Pereira and Steven Seagal

In the main event of UFC 300, Alex Pereira will defend his UFC light heavyweight championship against Jamahal Hill. While it’s a contest many have been waiting a long time to see, some are surprised to see it in the headline slot for such a blockbuster pay-per-view.

Either way, both men are determined to put on a show in what is likely to be a huge night for the promotion. Pereira is hoping to cement himself as the best 205-pounder in the world, whereas Hill wants to prove that he can successfully rebound from what was a pretty substantial injury.

Pereira’s next step

In the mixed martial arts world, it’s not uncommon for Steven Seagal to pop up every now and then. He’s been a big fan of the sport for years. Along the way, he’s trained with a string of notable fighters. Now, it appears, that includes the light heavyweight king Alex Pereira.

Of course, the real focus for the champ needs to be on Jamahal Hill and the threat he poses. There are a lot of unknowns when it comes to how healthy he is but even with that being the case, there’s plenty of excitement in the air heading into UFC 300.
