Tomorrow night at the "Kaseya Center" arena in Miami, USA, UFC 299 tournament is set to take place.

The main event will feature a lightweight bout between former interim UFC lightweight champion and former title contender Dustin Poirier from the United States and French prospect Benoit Saint-Denis, who boasts five consecutive early victories.

Poirier's last fight took place last year, his only one in 2023, when he faced Justin Gaethje at UFC 291 in July and suffered a defeat. Saint-Denis had two fights last year, and in his latest bout in November at UFC 295, he defeated Matt Frevola.

The evening's headline event will be a bout for the UFC bantamweight championship, with reigning champion American Sean O'Malley defending his title against challenger Marlon Vera from Ecuador.

The last fight for the American was his only bout in 2023, when he faced Aljamain Sterling at UFC 292 in August. Vera had two fights last year, with his latest at the same UFC 292 event where he defeated Pedro Munhoz.
