UFC 279: Nate Diaz vs Tony Ferguson fight card, start time, TV channel and live stream


Let's start with Nate Diaz vs. Khamzat Chimaev. That was the fight that was supposed to headline UFC 279. But Chimaev missed weight massively, coming in 7.5 pounds over the 171 limits. To save the card, the UFC had to rearrange the entire main card. 

After negotiations between the fighters, there's a new main event. And one that, bizarrely, makes a lot more sense.

Instead of being outmatched by Chimaev, Nate Diaz is now facing off against fellow UFC legend Tony Ferguson.
