UFC 300 Odds: Alex Pereira Opens As Slight Favorite Over Jamahal Hill

UFC 300 goes down tonight at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. In the main event, UFC light heavyweight champ Alex Pereira is the favorite at -134 in his first 205-pound title defense against former champ Jamahal Hill (+120). The betting line on the UFC 300 main event has shifted in favor of Pereira on fight day.

In the co-main event, UFC women’s strawweight champion Zhang Weili is a heavy -500 favorite against challenger Yan Xiaonan (+410). Also on the card, former UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway is a +140 underdog against Justin Gaethje (-150) in their 155-pound fight for the ceremonial BMF title.

Below, we’ll look at the latest UFC 300 odds for the full fight card. You can also check out UFC betting options and UFC prop bets for this and other events.

UFC 300 main event odds

Alex Pereira () vs. Jamahal Hill ()

Pereira (9-2) scored an impressive TKO win over Jiri Prochazka in November to claim the 205-pound title, giving him his second UFC championship in as many divisions. Questions remain about his grappling ability, but the former kickboxer is still considered one of the UFC’s most dangerous fighters in any striking battle that takes place on the feet.

Hill (12-1) also usually prefers to stand and strike, using his height and reach to his advantage. That strategy could require some refinement against Pereira, who’s also a tall, rangy fighter with great kickboxing skills. Hill had to relinquish the 205-pound title without ever defending it after a ruptured Achilles tendon sidelined him. He hasn’t fought since beating Pereira’s longtime coach Glover Teixeira over a year ago, meaning he will have been out of action for nearly 15 months by the time this fight takes place.

Pereira has been to the scorecards only twice in his professional MMA career, and neither of those were in five-round title fights. Of his nine wins, seven came via KO/TKO, with zero submission victories and hardly even any attempts. Hill had won three straight fights via KO/TKO before his decision victory over Teixeira to claim the vacant 205-pound title. He’s also never won a fight by submission and has been knocked out just once as a professional.

Kayla Harrison () vs. Holly Holm ()

Harrison (16-1) just signed with the UFC after spending most of her professional career up to this point fighting in the PFL promotion, where she won multiple tournament titles. Harrison won two Olympic gold medals in judo before transitioning to MMA in 2018, and judo still forms the base of her overall game as a fighter. She’ll make her UFC debut at UFC 300, and she’ll do so at the 135-pound division. Previously, Harrison has mostly fought at 155 pounds, so this represents a major drop in weight. Whether she’ll be able to make that drop without letting the big weight cut negatively affect her performance remains to be seen.

Holm (15-6, 1 NC) is a former UFC women’s 135-pound champion, and prior to that she won several titles as a professional boxer. At 42, she’s nearly a decade older than Harrison, and her many years in the fight game seem to be finally catching up to her. Holm’s last fight was a submission loss to recent title challenger Mayra Bueno Silva, though it changed to a no-contest after Silva came up positive for a banned stimulant during a drug test. Holm has rounded out her game with solid wrestling and has wins over current UFC 135-pound champ Raquel Pennington, as well as former UFC champ Ronda Rousey.

Justin Gaethje () vs. Max Holloway ()

Gaethje (25-4) is coming off a big knockout win over Dustin Poirier last summer, a victory that earned him the ceremonial “BMF” title in the UFC. That largely symbolic belt will go up for grabs here, as Gaethje tries to extend a two-fight winning streak that he hopes may earn him another UFC 155-pound title shot. Gaethje’s one-punch power is well-established at this point, but his overall game has also become more strategic and less reckless in recent years.

Holloway (25-7) is taking another stab at moving up in weight after a long tenure as one of the UFC’s best 145-pounders. Holloway held the UFC featherweight title for three years, but three losses to current champ Alexander Volkanovski have helped convince him to try another division, at least for one night. In his last lightweight foray, the difference in size and power seemed to be an issue for him. Holloway is still one of the best technical boxers in any UFC division, but it’s unclear how his chin will stand up to Gaethje’s power.

Zhang Weili () vs. Yan Xiaonan ()

Zhang (24-3) is putting her 115-pound title up for grabs for the first time since her unanimous decision win over Amanda Lemos last summer. That was the third straight win for the UFC strawweight champ, and she’s yet to lose in the UFC to anyone not named Rose Namajunas. Her blend of speed and power in the striking game, plus a formidable and still improving wrestling game, have all proven to be too much for just about every current fighter in the division so far.

Yan (17-3) is coming off a knockout win over former champ Jessica Andrade last May. That victory propelled her into this title shot, which will be the UFC’s first championship fight between two Chinese fighters. Yan started out primarily as a striker, though she’s rounded out her skill set since coming to the UFC. Still, she may face speed and strength gaps against Zhang and will likely have to find a way to keep the fight at her preferred range and pace.
