UFC 279 Card LIVE: Nate Diaz vs Tony Ferguson plus Khamzat Chimaev stream and latest updates

Diaz meets Ferguson at UFC 279; Chimaev greets boos at the weigh-in

Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson clash in tonight’s UFC 279 main event after Khamzat Chimaev’s weight-loss failure shook the map at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Icon Diaz, entering the last fight of his UFC contract, was due to face the company’s fastest-rising star in Chimaev, but the Russian-born Swede ended a week to forget by being underweight. The undefeated Chimaev, 28, had previously faced middleweight Paulo Costa at the UFC Performance Institute on Monday and caused a series of behind-the-scenes incidents on Thursday by kicking Kevin Holland, with the pre-fight press conference being cut short at the last moment .

Now, fan-favorite Ferguson will face longtime colleague Diaz in a five-round welterweight main event, while Chimaev faces Holland in a catchweight bout. Meanwhile, Ferguson and Holland’s original opponents – Li Jingliang and Daniel Rodriguez – also face off in a catchweight match. Fans have long wished to see Americans Diaz, 37, and Ferguson, 38, compete and they’ll finally get their chance tonight, before Diaz rides off into the sunset. Meanwhile, Chimaev’s remarkable rise up the welterweight rankings has met its first real hurdle as his future in the division is now at least somewhat unclear.

Tiuliulin vs. Pickett – Round 2

That was Tiuliulin’s fluke, and his first “low blow” didn’t even seem to land deep, but he docked a point!

He’s furious and goes right after Pickett and drops him with a hard elbow! However, Tiuliulin isn’t quite able to launch an effective offense on the canvas and Pickett stands.

Now Tiuliulin drops Pickett on one knee against the fence and launches a series of punches as Pickett hits! The fight ends; Tiuliulin takes the TKO win!
