UFC 279 Results: When, Where, and Who?
UFC 279 takes place on Saturday, September 10, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight card is topped by a welterweight showdown.
UFC 279 main event: Khamzat Chimaev vs. Nate Diaz
Khamzat Chimaev (11-0) has blasted his way to a spotless record in the Octagon with wins over the likes of Gerald Meerschaert, Li Jingliang, and Gilbert Burns. Currently sitting at No. 3 in the UFC welterweight division, he has his eyes fixed on current champ Kamaru Usman. He must first shut down the challenge of fan favorite Nate Diaz in the UFC 279 main event.
Nate Diaz (20-13) is a UFC enigma. His record is mediocre. He’s never won a UFC championship. But his tenacious, bad-boy style draws fans in droves or repels them en masse just the same. Always at odds with the UFC brass, Diaz looks to upset Chimaev and quite possibly walk away into the sunset. This is the final fight on his current UFC contract.
UFC 279 co-main event: Li Jingliang vs. Tony Ferguson
Li Jingliang (19-7) is consistently flirting with the top ten of the welterweight division, but hasn’t been able to bust down the door. At UFC 279, he welcomes Tony Ferguson to the welterweight division, looking to win in impressive fashion and ensconce himself in the upper echelon of the 170-pound class.
Meanwhile, Ferguson (25-7) is looking to breath no life into his career. Once one of the most feared fighters in the lightweight division, he las now lost four consecutive bouts. Moving up a division, Ferguson looks to Jingliang as the first step in finding a new home for his talents.
Next Up: UFC Vegas 60 Sandhagen vs. Song
Next in the Octagon is UFC Vegas 60 on Saturday, September 17. Top ten ranked bantamweights Cory Sandhagen and Song Yadong battle it out to see who might be able to shake up the rankings.
