Both the official weigh ins (HERE) and ceremonial weigh ins (HERE) are complete for UFC 279 tomorrow night (Sat., Sept. 10, 2022) live on ESPN+ pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and fight fans can now check out the final main card faceoffs.
UFC 279’s main event will feature a last-second matchup between Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson. Diaz was originally expected to fight Khamzat Chimaev in the headliner before “Borz” missed weight by nearly eight pounds Friday morning. The promotion had to pivot and pulled Ferguson away from his matchup with Li Jingliang to fill in. Chimaev will now face Kevin Holland in the co-headliner, with Jingliang squaring off with Daniel Rodriguez at 170 pounds.
The fighters took to the stage one final time earlier tonight at UFC 279’s ceremonial weigh ins and produced some memorable staredowns. Check them out below:
