LAS VEGAS – MMA Junkie is on scene and reporting live from Saturday’s UFC 279 event, and you can join us for live play-by-play and official results.

UFC 279 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNEWS and early prelims on ESPN+.

In the hastily scrambled welterweight main event, fan favorite Nate Diaz (20-13 MMA, 15-11 UFC), who likely is fighting for the final time in the UFC, takes on former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson (25-7 MMA, 15-5 UFC). In the co-feature, Khamzat Chimaev (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) fights Kevin Holland (23-7 MMA, 10-4 UFC) at a catchweight. Chimaev was set to fight Diaz in the main event until he missed weight so badly a welterweight fight wasn’t going to be sanctioned. The UFC scrambled and bumped Ferguson up from the co-feature. In the fallout, Li Jingliang (19-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) takes on Daniel Rodriguez (16-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC), who was meant to fight Holland, at a catchweight.

Follow along with our round-by-round updates and official results beginning at approximately 6 p.m. ET for the early prelims on ESPN+, 8 p.m. ET for the prelims on ESPNews and 10 p.m. ET for the main card on pay-per-view.

Enjoy the fights, everyone.

Yohan Lainesse vs. Darian Weeks

Round 1 – Here we go! UFC 279 is underway. Lainesse hovering in the outside and landing leg kicks. And a solid right-hand lands for Lainesse. His movement and timing is on point. Another right hand by Lainesse. Weeks has yet to get going. Three minutes left. Good jab and leg kick land by Lainesse. Weeks closes the distance and gets a guillotine position while standing. Lainesse gets out shortly after. Lainesse staying behind his jab and scoring big. Weeks has yet to land something meaningful. One minute left. Lainesse not doing a ton of damage, but he’s scoring with leg kicks and jabs, while not taking any damage. The bell rings.
