So, everyone who was ready to watch the UFC 279 live stream online? If you weren’t paying attention yesterday, we have some news for you. Remember how the main event was to see Nate Diaz taking on Khamzat Chimaev in a welterweight brawl? Now, there’s a new match.

Then, at the weigh-ins, we saw Khamzat Chimaev miss weight. Specifically, while Diaz met the 171-pound welterweight limit for non-title fights, Chimaev hit 178.5, off by 7.5 pounds. This throws the match — Diaz’s final on his UFC contract — into chaos.

MMA writer Cole Shelton(opens in new tab) tweeted that someone in Diaz’s camp said “Khamzat fight’s not going to happen.” Diaz’s crew thinks Chimaev wasn’t even trying to make weight, and instead cheat. Shelton noted that the belief is that Diaz will fight Tony Ferguson, or he will walk. 

Shelton’s sources were right, and Diaz will now fight Ferguson. Chimaev fights Kevin Holland who… well, let’s rewind a bit. He got into a verbal tiff with middleweight Paulo Costa on Wednesday, and then on Thursday he got into a scuffle with … Kevin Holland.

Ferguson (-130, wager $130 to win $100) is a much slighter favorite over Diaz than Chimaev (-950) was. Those odds are via DraftKings(opens in new tab), which has Diaz at +110 (bet $100 to win $110).
