"Like Something Out of a Movie" - Dana White

Epic Showcase in Las Vegas
The monumental event UFC 300: Pereira vs. Hill, etched into the annals of MMA history, featured a dazzling array of fights among top-tier UFC stars across various weight divisions. In an electrifying main event, Alex Pereira showcased dominance by knocking out Jamahal Hill in the opening round. The spectacle also saw former champion Max Holloway delivering a sensational knockout against Justin Gaethje.

Dana White’s Lavish Praise
In a post-fight revelation, UFC President Dana White announced that Holloway and Gaethje were awarded a Fight Of The Night bonus of $300,000 each. Holloway further bagged a Performance of the Night bonus, equaling the earlier amount, for his stellar victory.



White Astonished by Holloway’s Victory
At the press conference, White commended Holloway for his outstanding performance, declaring it the most incredible moment he has witnessed in his tenure with the organization. “Just one second left and he delivers such a knockout. It was like something out of a movie. People ask me what I’m doing here? I’m trying to organize moments like this. This was the craziest moment ever. We’re going to set up something great for him. He was already a star beforehand, but this is another level,” White expressed.

Holloway’s Rising Star
Max Holloway, now victorious in his last three fights within the premier MMA organization, is poised to face UFC featherweight champion Ilia Topuria in his next bout.
