Just over fourth months remain until the bumper UFC 300 card slated for April 13 in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
UFC CEO Dana White has vowed to make the card one of the most stacked in the promotion’s history, saying that every fight from the main event to the opening prelim will be one of great interest to fight fans the world over. Just three bouts have been confirmed for the card so far: Aljamain Sterling’s featherweight debut against Calvin Kattar, Jiri Prochazka’s light heavyweight bout with Aleksandr Rakic and the return of former Penn State wrestling sensation Bo Nickal, who takes on Cody Brundage.
But three fights do not make a fight card and amid intense speculation exists as to who else might be announced in the coming day, White has revealed exactly when we are likely to learn a few more details about the keenly-anticipated event.
Dana White says he is on vacation in Bali until Sunday. He will have a matchmaking meeting on Tuesday and will have more fight announcements then.

“I’ll have more fights for you on Tuesday,” White said in a video posted to Instagram Live, sent while he is on holiday in Bali. “I get home Sunday, and I’ll have more fights for 300 on Tuesday.” The UFC boss also added later that he may even jump the gun and fire off a fight announcement before he returns to Las Vegas.
One name we can expect to be announced in the coming days or weeks is that of Jim Miller; the UFC veteran who appeared on both the UFC 100 and UFC 200 fight cards.
But with several high profile slots to fill ahead of the event in four months, right now your guess is as good as ours.
