Diaz vs Ferguson UFC 279

Khamzat Chimaev vs. Diaz become initially scheduled as this weekend`s major occasion. Chiamaev overlooked the welterweight restriction via way of means of 7.five kilos and Diaz reportedly refused to combat an obese opponent.

Diaz`s report withinside the Octagon is simply 15-11, so it doesn`t precisely scream “winning.” That said, the scrappy slugger has continually been must-watch due to his brash, “I don`t supply a f—k” mindset that has made him — and his older brother, Nick Diaz — fan favorites for the beyond decade.
