UFC 279: Diaz vs. Ferguson TV schedule, how to watch 3

The UFC 279 main card has been completely reshuffled, and it’s now somehow even better than it looked earlier in the week.

Tonight’s main event is now a welterweight clash between two UFC veterans, Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson. Diaz and Ferguson are regarded as two of the most exciting fighters in the promotion’s history, and now we’ll finally see the two share the cage in the UFC 279 main event.

Diaz’s original opponent was dominant welterweight contender Khamzat Chimaev. However, Chimaev came in 7.5 pounds over the welterweight limit and now finds himself relegated to the co-main event slot where he’ll face Kevin Holland, who had weighed in at 180 pounds for his fight with Daniel Rodriguez.

UFC 279 is tonight, and that means it’s now time to start making preparations to watch all of the fights live. Read on for the full UFC 279 TV schedule, fight card, and details regarding how to watch the UFC 279 PPV on your TV.
