UFC 279 Stream – How To Watch Chimaev vs. Diaz Online

via UFC

The UFC returns with a highly anticipated pay-per-view event this Saturday, live from T-Mobile Arena, in Las Vegas Nevada.


The main card is loaded with two welterweight thrillers! Rising UFC star Khamzat Chimaev takes on fan-favorite veteran Nate Diaz and former UFC lightweight champion Tony Ferguson returns to welterweight against Li Jingliang. UFC 279 also features an exciting catchweight bout in Kevin Holland vs. Daniel Rodriguez.

Chimaev looks to continue his undefeated streak as he prepares to “handle Nate Diaz’s funeral with the UFC.” The Swedish mixed martial artist is a heavy favorite coming off a “Fight of the Night” performance against Gilbert Burns at UFC 273.

Diaz enters his final fight with the UFC against an opponent he never even wanted, but that’s no reason to count him out. An upset win could solidify his legendary status among fans.
