OKBET MMA | Nate Diaz competes against Tony Ferguson. Will Diaz’s UFC career end with an amazing win?



At UFC 279 in Las Vegas, veteran UFC fighter Nate Diaz was set to compete against Khamzat Chimaev in the main event and then retire from the company.

Yesterday, Chimaev failed to make weight, therefore Diaz will now face Tony Ferguson in the night’s last bout at T-Mobile Arena.

Chimaev will now play Kevin Holland, while Holland and Ferguson’s intended opponent, Daniel Rodriguez, will now face Li Jingliang.

We have also discussed Li Jingliang vs. Rodriguez and will provide an analysis of the odds for Chimaev vs. Holland, but this article focuses on the rearranged main event.

Is Diaz now a more probable victor?

Diaz would have been a huge underdog if the battle against Chimaev had occurred as planned.

Before the weight error and ensuing shakeup, the odds at some of the best legal sports betting sites were as follows:

  • FanDuel: Khamzat Chimaev -1100/Nate Diaz +680
  • Khamzat Chimaev is a -1000 favorite and Nate Diaz is a +650 underdog at OKBet Sportsbook.
  • Khamzat Chimaev -1115 vs Nate Diaz +750 at BetRivers
  • BetMGM: Khamzat Chimaev -1000/Nate Diaz +650
  • Longtime UFC fans are aware that Nate and his brother Nick are never to be discounted.

Nevertheless, the rearrangement has given Diaz a far more winnable fight, as seen by the odds for the match.

Instead of facing Chimaev, he will now fight Ferguson, whose most recent UFC victory occurred before Diaz’s most recent UFC victory.

Diaz defeated Anthony Pettis by decision at UFC 241 in Anaheim, California, on August 17, 2019.

Since then, Diaz has only fought twice, losing by TKO to Jorge Masvidal at UFC 244 in November 2019 and by decision to Leon Edwards at UFC 263 in June 2021.

El Cucuy is aware of the passage of time.
Tony Ferguson is a well-known figure in mixed martial arts, but at 38 years old, the American fighter from California is acutely aware that his time is running out.

He is currently rated eleventh in the lightweight division and has not won since June 8, 2019, when he defeated Donald Cerrone by TKO at UFC 238 in Chicago.

He enters the octagon on fight night with a record of four consecutive defeats, including two knockout losses and two defeats on the scorecards. This indicates that Ferguson’s career is in decline, but a victory in this match might ignite a revival.

If Ferguson is anything close to his best, he should win this fight. Reasonably, the odds give him the advantage. But Diaz will want to go out on top, so it would be prudent to support him to accomplish so.
