Nate Diaz became one of the most recognizable UFC figures throughout the last couple of years. His bouts with Connor McGregor are considered to be one of the most vicious fights in martial arts’ entire history.
With his contract coming to an end, he was scheduled to come up against Khamzat Chimaev for UFC 279 in a welterweight battle. Unfortunately, his opponent didn’t make the weigh-in and the organization was forced to mix up its options.
Diaz would eventually be included in the main event fighting against former interim UFC Lightweight champion, Tony Ferguson.
However, this last-minute change in the schedule might not be a precise representation of the current situation as both fighters have prepared for a battle against a totally different opponent.
