Get ready for Saturday’s bang-bang welterweight main event at UFC 279 with the latest Diaz vs. Ferguson odds and prop bets via FanDuel Sportsbook.
Heading into their scheduled UFC 279 matchup in Las Vegas on Saturday, 28-year-old Khamzat Chimaev and veteran Nate Diaz were on opposite ends of the MMA career spectrum, two perplexingly incongruent sides of a scheduled welterweight main event that really didn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Then, Friday happened — one of the most bizarre days in UFC history despite not a single sanctioned bout taking place. The short version of a truly head-spinning series of events:
- Chimaev missed weight severely due to what was reported as a medical issue, blowing past the sanctioned 171-pound limit by a full 7.5 pounds, torpedoing the bout with Diaz
- A wild matchmaking scramble followed to save the pay-per-view, with co-main event combatant Tony Ferguson stepping up to take Chimaev’s place
- Chimaev was re-booked for a new co-main event against Kevin Holland
- Holland’s intended opponent, Daniel Rodriguez, was re-booked against Ferguson’s originally scheduled opponent, Li Jingliang
Where incongruence once reigned, the MMA universe suddenly fell back in balance.
