LAS VEGAS – New UFC 279 headliners Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson got the chance to size each other up for the first and only time on Friday at ceremonial weigh-ins.
After official weigh-ins turned to chaos and the entire top of the card was forced to be revamped, Diaz (20-13 MMA, 15-11 UFC) and Ferguson (25-7 MMA, 15-5 UFC) will now fight each other in a welterweight bout.
First, though, the pair had a staredown at MGM Grand Garden Arena; just down the street from T-Mobile Arena which hosts Saturday’s pay-per-view main card following prelims on ESPNNEWS and ESPN+..
Check out the video above to see the Diaz vs. Ferguson UFC 279 ceremonial weigh-in faceoff.
