Chimaev vs Diaz Official Weigh-in Results

We’re one day away from UFC 279: Chimaev vs. Diaz, and MMA News is here to deliver the official weigh-in results as every fight on the card is made official.

There wasn’t a full press conference yesterday due to the chaos that reportedly erupted backstage, so hopefully the weigh-ins go off without a hitch, with all of the contestants able to successfully gain some weight.

That includes event headliners Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev and his war-tested opponent, Nate Diaz. In the co-main event, Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson will take on Li Jingliang in Ferguson’s return to the welterweight division.

Other main card action included a FOTN favorite contest between Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez, Irene Aldana taking on Macy Chiasson and a possible steal between light heavyweights Johnny Walker and Ion Cutelaba.
