UFC 279 has now been updated and the card reshuffled. During a crazy 24 hours where the press conference was cancelled and Khamzat Chimaev failed to make weight, Diaz v Ferguson is now the main event. It all seems a bit suss to me, read the below post for more info.
Hey everyone! Enjoy UFC Paris? Hope so! What a fight that was.. Tai is one tough Auzzie, great to see Gane back on track..
Before we move into the next UFC (279), here's a reminder of what went down with UFC Paris: Gane v Tuivasa (plus our post fight discussion thread).
It's on to the next UFC 🎉 and the main card is an absolute corker, hardcore fan favourite and UFC legend Nate Diaz is being given the challenge of his life on his last fight on his contract. Many fans believe that the UFC are doing Diaz dirty here as he refuses to renew his contract and demands to fight out his contract.
Here we go with UFC 279 🔥
