Willing to increasingly increase the notoriety of the UFC 300Dana White did not hesitate to thwart Islam Makhachev's plans and summoned Justin gaethje for the historic event on April 13th. BMF champion of the organization, the North American goes for his first title defense and receives Max Holloway in the lightweight category (up to 70,3kg.). The confrontation will last five rounds.

Interested in facing Justin gaethje before receiving the winner between Charles of the Bronx x Arman Tsarukyan, Makhachev tried to impose himself on Dana's promise about the future of the organization and ended up being unsuccessful in planning. On his social networks, the lightweight champion declared that he would face the North American in June and the Brazilian or Armenian in November.
