The Search for the Perfect Main Event
Former two-division champion Daniel Cormier believes that UFC 300 needs something more to make it truly historic. As the mixed martial arts leader gears up for its April 13 event in Las Vegas, fans and fighters alike have been buzzing with anticipation. However, not everyone is satisfied with the current lineup of matchups. Ranked lightweight contender Renato Moicano has even criticized the UFC 300 card, calling it ‘not that great.’ Cormier, who has transitioned from fighter to UFC commentator, agrees that the event is missing a crucial element.
During a recent episode of ESPN MMA’s DC & RC show, Cormier shared his thoughts on UFC 300 and his expectations for the upcoming event. One of the main points of discussion has been the headliner, which has yet to be announced. Cormier emphasized the need for a major matchup, but he doesn’t believe it will feature the sport’s biggest superstar.
Cormier stated, "I have some ideas in mind for what I think or hope the UFC 300 main event will be. I’m not sure if it will happen, but I do know that it won’t involve Conor McGregor. What I can say about UFC 300 is that it’s missing a big fight. That big fight needs to have a compelling backstory and intense rivalry. It needs to capture the attention of fans."
He continued, "So, it can’t be Belal Muhammad vs. Leon Edwards. While it’s a fantastic fight, it doesn’t have the necessary elements to be the main event."
Speculation has been circulating about a welterweight title fight between Edwards and Muhammad as a potential main event for UFC 300. However, Cormier believes that this matchup would be underwhelming for such a significant milestone event.
