The fans of MMA were surprised last Saturday (17/03) with the announcement that UFC 300, which takes place on April 13, in Las Vegas (USA), will have two Brazilians on the main card. The light heavyweight champion (up to 93kg.), Alex Poatán, will defend his belt against Jamahal hill, while the light weight (up to 70,3kg.) Charles of the Bronx will face Arman Tsarukyan, looking for a new chance to compete for the category title.

The news was released by the organization shortly after the UFC 298, and caused an uproar on social media. Many internet users celebrated the presence of the two biggest names in national MMA today at the same event, but also expressed concern about the outcome of the fights.
