0

UFC 279 takes place Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The card features 13 fights for viewers to enjoy and place a bet. The first preliminary card begins at 6 p.m. on UFC Fight Pass. The preliminary card is next at 8 p.m. on ESPNEWS. The big show starts at 10 p.m. on ESPN+ PPV.

It was a wild lead to fight the night thanks to a major weigh-in issue. Khamzat Chimaev was set to face Nate Diaz in a main event to move up the welterweight ranks. However, he showed up at the weigh-in 7.5 pounds overweight and that resulted in six fighters and three different fights to switch opponents.

Now we get Nate Diaz vs. Tony Ferguson at welterweight in the main event and a Khamzat Chimaev vs. Kevin Holland co-feature at a catchweight. Holland was scheduled to face Daniel Rodriguez while Ferguson was scheduled to face Li Jingliang. With moves from Ferguson and Chimaev, Rodriguez is now fighting
