UFC 279 Preview Show: Nate Diaz takes on Tony Ferguson. Khamzat Chimaev loses weight


Nate Diaz is still headlining UFC 279. Everything else has not changed.

MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck, Shaun Al-Shatti, and Alexander K. Lee react to one of the most chaotic days in MMA history following a flurry of last-second changes to Saturday’s pay-per-view. With Diaz now fighting Tony Ferguson, what’s at stake for the two UFC legends? How has Chimaev’s stock changed over a 24-hour span that saw him brawl with his card-mates backstage then miss weight by a stunning margin of 7. 5 pounds? How many gangsters Daniel Rodriguez and Li Jingliang are for pulling the strings throughout an absurd and dramatic week?

The gang answers those questions and more after a day that will go down in MMA infamy.
