The first UFC pay-per-view of 2024 has come and gone. UFC 297 won’t be remembered as a high-quality or action-packed card but the next three major events show promise.

There is a lot of quality between UFC 298 and UFC 300. Before we get there, the promotion completes a two-week tour of the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Nassoudine Imavov defeated Roman Dolidze in the main event of UFC Fight Night on Feb. 3. Jack Hermansson vs. Joe Pyfer headlines UFC Fight Night on Feb. 10. Pyfer is becoming a bit of an Internet darling, stopping his last four opponents between “Dana White’s Contender Series” and the UFC. Hermansson defends his position in the UFC’s official middleweight rankings and looks to recover from a December 2022 loss to Dolidze.

UFC 298 takes place on Feb. 17 in Anaheim. Alexander Volkanovski looks to wash a bad taste out of his mouth after a short-notice knockout loss to Islam Makhachev in October by defending his UFC featherweight title against surging contender Ilia Topuria. UFC bantamweight champion Sean O’Malley makes his first title defense against the only person to ever defeat him, Marlon Vera, at UFC 299 in Miami on March 9. All roads lead to UFC 300 on April 13 featuring UFC women’s strawweight champion Zhang Weili vs. Yan Xiaonan and BMF champ Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway with no main event announced.
