Gaethje fighting Oliveira

With 12 current or former champions competing at UFC 300, the event is poised to be the biggest in the organization’s history.

Four record-holding fighters are among the line-up, which is more than any previous UFC event.

Let’s take a look at their records to see which ones could possibly be broken or extended on Saturday night.

Charles Oliveira

Despite having the most UFC submission wins (16) and most UFC finishes (20), Charles “Do Bronx” Oliveira (Brazil) goes into his fight this weekend as a betting underdog.

The 34-year-old former lightweight champion is taking on Armenian prospect Arman Tsarukyan, who’s never been knocked out or submitted in the UFC.

The odds are stacked against Oliveira extending his records, but after finishing his opponents in all but two of his UFC wins, he can never be counted out.

Oliveira has also received more fight night bonuses (19) than any other fighter. With UFC president Dana White announcing that bonuses for UFC 300 will be $300,000 rather than the regular $50,000, Oliveira will certainly be trying even harder than usual to finish the fight.

Max Holloway

Self-proclaimed “best boxer in the UFC” Max Holloway has set three records during his 28 fights in the organization:

  • Most significant strikes landed during a UFC match: 445 against Calvin Kattar in 2021
  • Most significant strikes landed during a UFC title match: 290 against Brian Ortega in 2018
  • Most significant strikes landed in a UFC career: 3,197 (over 1,300 more than anyone else)

The 32-year-old Hawaiian featherweight is moving up to the lightweight division to face Justin Gaethje for the “BMF” (Baddest Mother F***er) belt.

Gaethje is a powerful brawler who will happily engage with Holloway in a striking battle, and with the fight being five rounds instead of the usual three, there is a real chance that Holloway breaks both of his single-fight striking records, in addition to markedly increasing his overall career total.

Jim Miller

Three months after extending his records for the most UFC fights (43) and most UFC wins (26) by submitting Gabriel Benítez, 40-year-old Jim Miller (USA) will be looking to overcome Bobby Green at UFC 300.

Miller has two more UFC fights and three more UFC wins than former heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski, who sits in second place in both categories.

Miller made his UFC debut over 15 years ago. Over the years he’s finished 18 of his opponents – 12 being submissions – second only to Charles Oliveira.

Having fought at both UFC 100 in 2009 and UFC 200 in 2016, Miller will make history when he enters the Octagon on Saturday night as the only fighter to have competed at all of the UFC’s centennial events.

Jessica Andrade

Brazil’s Jessica Andrade made her UFC debut in July 2013. She’s fought 26 times over the 11 years since, claiming the record for the most UFC fights (female).

With 16 wins, she also jointly holds the record for the most UFC wins (female) with retired champion Amanda Nunes.

Andrade incredibly had five fights in 2023. Despite losing three of them, she put on an impressive performance in her most recent bout, knocking out Mackenzie Dern as a sizeable underdog.

At UFC 300, she’ll be looking to become the outright holder of the women’s wins record by beating fellow Brazilian Marina Rodriguez, a talented Muay Thai specialist.

And with nine UFC finishes to her name, Andrade is just one away from matching Amanda Nunes's record for the most UFC finishes (female).
