UFC 279: Explained
Chimaev-Diaz has been announced but stay tuned to more UFC news as you never know with Diaz. He may just come out on Twitter and say he’s not fighting as he remains a slippery figure for the UFC to handle. Still, UFC betting previews expect the unbeaten Chimaev to ragdoll Diaz as wrestling is his weakness. But Diaz is also dangerous on the mat and has the endurance to last beyond five rounds.
