Chimaev vs. Diaz: UFC 279 previews, predictions, coverage, odds, and more

Bloody Elbow presents its fight week coverage for the latest PPV (pay-per-view) event 2022 has to offer, UFC 279, which takes place on Saturday, September 10th, at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main event, the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) will feature a blockbuster Welterweight battle between undefeated No. 3-ranked contender Khamzat Chimaev (11-0) and perennial fan favorite Nate’ The Stockton Badboy’ Diaz (20-13). These two fan favorites at different stages of their careers will undoubtedly clash. Keep in mind that Diaz has only fought five times in the last six years and enters the Octagon Saturday night as the decided underdog, with 11-1 odds in favor of his opponent, the rising Khamzat, who has fought five times in the last two years, landing a total of 112 strikes in his first four UFC fights while being struck only once.

The co-main event will undoubtedly be a nail-biter. Tony’ El Cucuy’ Ferguson, a former top-ranked Lightweight contender, will return to the 170-pound weight class for his next assignment against Welterweight “Leech,” Li Jingliang.

 

As if that wasn’t enough excitement for one night, the UFC is also featuring a highly anticipated fight between two Light Heavyweights, the eccentric Johnny Walker and the wicked Ion Cutelaba.

 

The UFC 279 main PPV card of five bouts air live on ESPN+ PPV at 10/7 PM ETPT, preceded by four Featured Prelims on ESPN NEWS/ESPN+ at 8/5 PM ETPT, and the event begins with four Early Prelims on UFC Fight Pass at 6/3 PM ETPT. DraftKings Sportsbook odds.
