Khamzat Chimaev Vs Nate Diaz Weigh-Ins: UFC 279 All The News And Updates Are Here

We’ve seen a debacle one day ago. Dana White didn’t let UFC 279 press conference happen because Nate Diaz, Khamzat Chimaev, Kevin Holland, and one unnamed fighter took part in a heated backstage altercation. Yet, the presser is not mandatory for the night of fights, so let’s focus on the UFC weigh-in today’s results.

Which Is UFC 279 Weigh-In Time And Where Can I Watch It?

You can look at it on the official UFC channel. It kicked off at 9 PM PT (noon ET, 6 PM CET). Click on the link below for more details.

Last-Minute Changes

UFC decided to make some rotations. Since Khamzat Chimaev massively missed weight, he'll be fighting Kevin Holland. The legendary Nate Diaz will meet another legend and the former interim champ Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson, while Li Jingliang squares off against Daniel Rodriguez.

Nate Diaz Vs Khamzat Chimaev weigh-in was pretty entertaining, but the night of fights looks pretty much promising, despite the disastrous weigh-in miss of Swedish superstar! Hakeem Dawodu and Chris Barnett also missed the scale! Don’t forget to watch the UFC 279 event at 6 PM ET on Saturday!
