UFC 300 Complete Results, Top Highlights

UFC 300 Complete Results and top highlights: Alex Pereira had no trouble defending his light heavyweight title against Jamahal Hill at UFC 300 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Brazilian finished the fight with a TKO win against Hill and wrapped the proceedings in the first round itself. He connected a punch on Jamahal's nose, following which his opponent fell on the canvas. Pereira then didn't allow any time for his opponent to recover as he pounced on a lying Jamahal and launched a series of punches, forcing referee Herb Dean to stop the contest.
Meanwhile, it was an incredible outing for Max Holloway, who arguably produced the best moment of UFC 300. After engaging in a grueling five-round fight with Justin Gaethje, Holloway wrapped the proceedings with an ice-cold sucker punch. The impact was such that Gaethje immediately went crashing on the canvas and lied unconscious as medical officers attended him.
The fight went till Round 5 and the knockout came with one second left on the clock. The win also saw Holloway walk out with the BMF belt.
In other news it was a disappointing night for Charles Oliveira. The ranked one fighter in the UFC lightweight division was overpowered by Arman Tsarukyan, who won the three-round fight via split decision. Oliveira got an early grip in the contest by locking his opponent with a strong guillotine choke. Despite the strong hold, Tsarukyan showed great resistance and managed to get out of it.
There was also a moment of medical concern as Oliveira kicked Tsarukyan on the face while trying to escape a submission hold by his opponent. The referee brought the fight to a brief halt and warned Oliveira of the violation, but surprisingly no points were deducted.
While Tsarukyan also dictated the proceedings, Oliveira again took him by surprise and locked him with another guillotine choke. However, the action came a bit too late almost towards the closing stages of Round 3. With just 20 seconds left in the round, Tsarukyan managed to beat the clock at ease, which was more than enough to convince two officials to decide the fight in his favour. Following the fight he called out the lightweight division champion Islam Makhachev.
Bo Nickal ‘embarrassed’ despite win
Middleweight fighter Bo Nickal kicked-off the main fight card against Cody Brundage with the former winning the fight via submission. The outcome extended Nickal's winning streak to six but he didn’t seem pleased with the win. Right after Brundage tapped out, Nickal was seen boing himself leaving fans and commentators confused. Nickal revealed he was "little bit embarrassed with that performance" as he expected to completely dominate his opponent.
Winning starts
In two big preliminary card fights, Kayla Harrison and Aljamain Sterling made winning starts. Harrison was making her UFC debut, while Sterling was fighting for the first time in the featherweight category after his switch from the bantamweight division. Harrison secured a win by submission against Holly Holm in the women bantamweight fight, wrapping it at 1:47 in Round 2.
Sterling, on the other hand, secured a unanimous decision victory over Calvin Kattar. Sterling, who was making a return for the first time since losing the bantamweight belt to Sean O’Malley last year, maintained a defensive approach, which many fans felt was boring. However, a win against a featherweight veteran like Kattar does help Sterling case, which was to make an instant impact in the new weight division.
