The UFC middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, will be defending his precious belt against the top contender, Sean Strickland, in less than a day. Adesanya wants to be featured in the iconic UFC 300 event that is expected to take place in the early phase of 2024.

The matchmakers will doubtlessly add great names to the card. Perhaps by December or January, we will find out who will make it to the UFC 300 card. Israel Adesanya believes Conor McGregor could be a part of it, and if that actually happens, the internet would definitely explode.

UFC 300 could turn out to be one of the biggest events in the history of the sport. McGregor deserves to be featured in it as he has played a significant role in attracting eyes to UFC and has been one of the best sources of entertainment for all UFC fans worldwide.

During the recent media day, Israel Adesanya shared his thoughts on fighting for the UFC 300 card and revealed who he would let headline the event. “I’d love to headline that, but we’ll see,” Adesanya said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com.

“I’ve watched UFC 100, that was Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir. UFC 200, that was (Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes). I’ve been a fan of the sport for a long time. UFC 300, I’m going to touch that, because I know I’m not going to hit UFC 400.

Adesanya further said: So, I’m definitely going to hit UFC 300. That’s one I’m going to be a part of, and Alex Volkanovski, as well, I feel should be a part of, I’ll co-headline for Alex Volkanovski.

That’s my dog. If he doesn’t fight, then I’ll headline it. I’m sure there’s other people, as well. Conor (McGregor) will probably try and jump in there because he’s a superstar, and he’ll just get whatever he wants. Yeah, we’ll see”.
