UFC 279 Rumors, When Is Press Conference, All Results, Odds
The general consensus is that Diaz may be in for a nasty fight because to Chimaev’s unwavering confidence.
Having said that, the Stockton native has faced being the underdog before and may be able to benefit from his five-round experience.
Khamzat Chimaev believes the UFC 279 main event is a must-watch because people want to see him ‘kill’ Nate Diaz.
When Is Press Conference:
Dana White, president of the UFC, made an effort to continue the press conference by introducing each of the six fighters in turn, two at a time, for each fight.
White, however, decided to call off the event entirely when Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez spoke with the media and audience members about their fight on the pay-per-view card.
Following the postponement press conference, White said that Khamzat Chimaev and Holland, who won’t be engaged in combat on Saturday night at UFC 279, instigated the altercations. No fighter needed medical treatment, and none of the bouts on the card are in danger, according to White.
MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
- Khamzat Chimaev (178.5)* vs. Nate Diaz (171)
- Tony Ferguson (171) vs. Li Jingliang (170.5)
- Kevin Holland (179.5) vs. Daniel Rodriguez (179) – 180-pound catchweight
- Irene Aldana (137.5) vs. Macy Chiasson (139.5) – 140-pound catchweight
- Ion Cutelaba (205.5) vs. Johnny Walker (205)
Turkalj’s Contender Series match saw him grind out an underwhelming striker, which is really bad news for his prospects against an outstanding ground fighter on short notice. Use Almeida to move marginal favourites into the lead because he will find a speedy finish.
Denis Tiuliulin (+105) vs. Jamie Pickett (-125)
Although Tiuliulin’s relentless aggression and Pickett’s poor range management make an upset more likely than I’d like, I do believe Pickett prevails more frequently. I’d avoid it.
