Charles Oliveira will now be facing Arman Tsarukyan in a superb matchup at UFC 300 on April 13th, 2024, according to a recent video put out on social media by Dana White. Historically the landmark events like this have been a huge deal for the promotion, and they pulled out all the stops to ensure that both UFC 100 and 200 were fantastic fight cards. UFC 300 promises to be no different, and the UFC has already been teasing the fact that they’re going to announce a huge fight in the months leading up to the event.
While this fight between Oliveira and Tsarukyan isn’t going to be the big announcement that they’re tempting fans with, it’s still an excellent matchup to feature on the main card. It’s also a promising sign for just how stacked UFC 300 is going to be, as this could easily serve as the main event of any of their regular fight night events. It also has huge implications for the lightweight division in this coming year, as Oliveira is the number one contender coming off a big win over Beneil Dariush while Tsarukyan is ranked fourth and riding a three-fight winning streak.
This will undoubtedly be a great fight for any MMA fans, but grappling aficionados are going to be particularly excited at the prospect of Charles Oliveira and Arman Tsarukyan taking it to the ground. Oliveira is the most effective submission specialist in UFC history with 21 submission wins over his career, while Tsarukyan has fantastic wrestling and has even been seen on the local BJJ competition scene. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when these two meet and whether or not either man is able to impose his game on the other once the fight hits the ground.
