Dana White continued with an additional series of fight announcements on Friday night including the latest fight for UFC 300.

The first announcement was that a heavyweight fight between Tai Tuivasa (14-6) and Marcin Tybura (24-8), which was scheduled for February 17 at UFC 298, will now headline the Fight Night card on March 16 at the Apex in Las Vegas. Tuivasa has lost three straight fights to Ciryl Gane, Sergei Pavlovich, and Alexander Volkov. Tybura is coming off a TKO loss to Tom Aspinall last July.

The main event of the Fight Night card on March 30 in Atlantic City will see a welterweight contest between Sean Brady (16-1) and Vicente Luque (22-9-1). Brady suffered the first loss of his career in October 2022 against Belal Muhammad but rebounded with a submission win against Kelvin Gastelum last month. Luque was scheduled to fight Ian Machado Garry last month at UFC 296 but was canceled after Garry came down with pneumonia during fight week.

White also announced a bantamweight fight between Cody Garbrandt (14-5) and Deiveson Figueiredo (22-3-1) for UFC 300 on April 13 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Garbradt has won his last two fights since returning to the bantamweight champion while Figueiredo made his weight class debut last month defeating Rob Font by unanimous decision.

In his video announcement, White also confirmed the previously reported flyweight fight between Rose Namajunas (11-6) and Amanda Ribas (13-4), which takes place on March 23 at the Apex.
