We’re one day out from UFC 279: Chimaev vs. Diaz, and MMA News is here to deliver the official weigh-in results as each bout on the card is made official.
There was no full press conference yesterday due to the bedlam that reportedly broke out backstage, so let us hope that the weigh-ins go off without a hitch, with all the competitors being able to successfully make weight.
That includes event headliners Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev and his opponent, the war-tested Nate Diaz. In the co-main event, Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson will be facing off against Li Jingliang in Ferguson’s return to the welterweight division.
Other main-card action includes a FOTN favorite contest between Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez, Irene Aldana taking on Macy Chiasson, and a possible showstealer between light heavyweights Johnny Walker and Ion Cutelaba.
