Chimaev Wants Diaz Brawl At UFC Presser

MMA news

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has to figure out how to get heated rivals Khamzat Chimaev and Nate Diaz to face off at the upcoming UFC 279 press conference — and then again at the UFC 279 ceremonial weigh ins — without all hell breaking loose.

Or at least without someone getting a water bottle to the kisser.

BLOCKBUSTER WELTERWEIGHT SHOWDOWN! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Sept. 10, 2022, with a must-watch Welterweight thriller that will see undefeated No. 3-ranked contender, Khamzat Chimaev, battle perennial fan favorite, Nate Diaz. In UFC 279’s pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event, former top-ranked Lightweight contender, Tony Ferguson, will return to the 170-pound weight class for his next assignment opposite Welterweight “Leech,” Li Jingliang.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Chimaev, however, is not-so-secretly hoping that both teams end up in a knock-down, drag-out brawl — regardless of the cost. Let’s just hope promotion president Dana White doesn’t get steamrolled like Dave Sholler did after the shit hit the fan back in 2014.

“If they wanna fight before (Saturday), fuck the money, brother, I’m gonna fight with them. I love to fight,” Chimaev told ESPN. “I’ve been born for war. I’m inside a warrior, don’t care. When the fights come, you don’t care about money or what’s behind it, just fight. If he wants to fight there with his team, I have like 20 guys with me. We’ll fight with all the teams, you know. I hope so. I would love if it happens, something crazy things there. His team is old, brother. My team is fresh. We kill this. His team almost handicapped, brother.”

Chimaev (11-0) and Diaz (20-13) will hook ‘em up in the UFC 279 pay-per-view (PPV) main event this Sat. night (Sept. 10, 2022) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what marks the final fight on the Stockton slapper’s existing UFC contract.

A victory could push Chimaev into the next 170-pound title shot, which may not come until Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman complete their trilogy in early 2023. As for Diaz, he recently formed his own “Real Fight” promotion in “The Golden State.”
