Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson will go head-to-head in tonight’s UFC 279 main event after what has been a chaotic week for the UFC.
Diaz’s original opponent, Khamzat Chimaev, missed weight by 7.5 pounds and was dropped from the main event slot at UFC 279. Ferguson steps up to fight Diaz in the main event, while Chimaev moves to the co-main event to fight Kevin Holland.
The fight has been scheduled for five rounds despite only Diaz preparing for a five-round fight at UFC 279. Ferguson was initially scheduled to fight Li Jingliang in a three-round welterweight fight.
