Highly anticipated UFC 300 fight 'in jeopardy' after premature announcement from Dana White

UFC 300 could lose a huge fight following a premature announcement from Dana White, according to Ariel Helwani.

UFC 300 is shaping up nicely ahead of the blockbuster event in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 13.

A main-event for the card has not yet been announced, but White has put together fights between Justin Gaethje and Max Holloway as well as Zhang Weili and Yan Xiaonan for UFC 300.

Not to mention Charles Oliveira vs. Arman Tsarukyan and Jiri Prochazka vs. Aleksandar Rakic while Kayla Harrison makes her UFC debut against Holly Holm.

But UFC 300 could lose a highly anticipated fight, according to Helwani, who claims a fighter who is set to compete on the event has NOT agreed to terms despite an announcement from White.

The veteran MMA reporter said: "I can tell you there’s another fight on (UFC) 300, one of the particulars has not agreed to yet. I’m not gonna say which fight it is, and I’ll tell you it’s probably not a main card fight, but there’s another fight on that card that was put out before one of the fighters agreed to it - and as of this second, they have not agreed to it yet."

Helwani also suggested White is hastily announcing major UFC fights to stop the MMA media from revealing them.

It comes after Dustin Poirier's massive fight against Benoit Saint-Denis was called off before being made official for UFC 299.

He initially stated that the bout was off, saying he 'couldn't come to terms' with the UFC.

After further talks, 'The Diamond' agreed terms with the promotion.

He'll make his Octagon return next month, having suffered a brutal knockout defeat to Gaethje in his last outing.

Saint-Denis, meanwhile, is on a five-fight winning streak, which includes a big first-round win over Matt Frevola last November.
