Tony actually looked decent in his last fight, unlike the previous ones. Until that hell of a KO

Yeah he did. I feel this isnt the best matchup for him but no way I am over rooting against Tony.

Tony shouldn't be fighting anymore. Dud has taken so much damage over the last 3 years, I don't even want him to get in the ring anymore.

He's never been the same since that double weight cut he did (on purpose, BTW) for the last Khabib fight.

Yeah i think the days of tony being competitive are over. Hopefully he is getting paid for stepping up last minute. Would be nice to see him get a win and hang them up. Im afraid both of these fights are setups to push chimaev and even leech in other markets.

I wouldn’t count Tony out just yet.



I’d definitely count Diaz out though

I mean, if he cares at all, Diaz could've finished the current champ. Instead, he pointed and laughed at him.

I feel nate got a shot in the 4th and 5th rounds if he can somehow avoid being finished or the fight get stopped due to his cuts. You just never know what diaz is gonna show up with these guys.

Ill probably do some crazy parlay with a tony finish and diaz finish in the 4th or 5th rounds. Should pay well.

The holland fight looks very intriguing the guy he is fighting is very good.

Nate has only been KO'd like once ever right?

This is going to get ugly.

I will be in Vegas and have tickets to UFC 279. First trip there and I can’t wait!

Yeah ill be there also but havent got tickets yet. Unfortunately the arena is gonna be about half full at best at this point unless something changes. Still should be a great atmosphere with fan favorites like diaz ferguson and holland. If somehow diaz and ferguson can pull this off it will be epic.

As weird as it is to say, Nate can win. But he will have to suffer greatly to get there.

Anyway, I’m taking.

Chimaev by Unanimous decision
Li by KO
Holland by Split decision
Chaisson via submission
Cutelaba by KO

I think Nate is riding out his contract and just don’t see him being competitive. I can see this going similar to Nick’s last fight

Diaz has lost 6 of his last 10 fights, 2 by stoppage. The guys got pudding between his ears and it's only going to get worse if he continues.

I dont see any way that diaz doesnt come in and fight his arse off. He has too much to lose. I thought Nick fought well he is just old and hasnt fought in a long time and looked like he was not in the best of shape.

to give him credit, every guy he has fought in the last 10 fights outside of michael johnson has been a champion or fought for a title. even johnson has beat some top level fighters and is a tough fight(ferguson, poirier, barboza), especially back when diaz fought him. Thats a tough stretch.

Diaz v Chimaev is just such a weird fight. I guess they want Chimaev to keep getting W's so they can get him up to/close to a title fight, and we know Nate will get in there with anyone.

I just wonder how they sit in a room and come up with this match-up
