UFC 298 was great and UFC 299 was downright fantastic. The road to UFC 300, one of the deepest cards in UFC history, begins with a bumpy ride. Four bland Fight Night cards stand between fans and the milestone pay-per-view event.

First up is a home game for the promotion. Tai Tuivasa vs. Marcin Tybura headlines the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday. Tuivasa is coming off three consecutive stoppage losses. Tybura was on a great run before Aspinall put him away in 73 seconds. Only two other matchups on the 13-bout card feature fighters acknowledged by UFC’s rankings panel: Pannie Kianzad vs. Macy Chiasson and Josiane Nunes vs. Chelsea Chandler.

There were debates online about whether UFC 299 or UFC 300 was the better card. One thing is certain: UFC 300 has a case for being the most high-level card ever produced. Five former UFC champions are on the prelims: Jiri Prochazka, Aljamain Sterling, Holly Holm, Jessica Andrade and Deiveson Figueiredo, plus the debut of multi-time PFL queen Kayla Harrison. The main card features three title fights: UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira vs. Jamahal Hill, women’s strawweight champ Zhang Weili vs. Yan Xiaonan and ceremonial BMF titleholder Justin Gaethje vs. Max Holloway.
