UFC 301 is being developed and will serve as 2024's fifth pay-per-view event. This page is the space for all our information about UFC 301.

Location and Date

UFC 301 will go down in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, on May 4th inside the Jeunesse Arena. This marks the UFC 12th return to Rio, with the last time being UFC 283, which Glover Texiera and Jamahall Hill headlined.


Confirmed Fights

There are six confirmed fights for UFC 301, with the bout order for the card currently unconfirmed. One of the highlights of the fights confirmed is a ranked middleweight fight between Scotland's Paul Craig and Brazil's Caio Borralho.

Other fights booked for the card include:

Women's Strawweight: Karolina Kowalkiewicz vs. Iasmin Lucindo Lightweight: Joaquim Silva vs. Drakkar Klose Flyweight: Alessandro Costa vs. Kevin Borjas Bantamweight: Jack Shore vs. Joanderson Brito Welterweight: Elves Brener vs. Myktybek Orolbai

Rumoured Fights

Alexandre Pantoja is willing and ready to fight on UFC 301, he just needs an opponent. The Flyweight division has a messy picture right now, with the Flyweight Champion holding two wins over lots of the contenders. Manel Kape is fighting on April 27th so he won't be ready to fight, and rising contenders such as Muhammad Mokaev and Steve Erceg still need another big win to get them into the title picture.

Alex Pereira also wants to headline UFC 301 but will need some luck to get it done. He's booked to fight Jamahal on UFC 300, so he'll first need to win that fight without injury and then find an opponent for UFC 301.


Betting Odds

There are no official betting odds for UFC 301 as of now.
