The main event was supposed to see Khamzat Chimaev vs. Nate Diaz, but now that Chimaev has missed weight by a bunch, there are talks of a whole bunch of shifting going on. Online gambling site Sportsbetting.ag was quick to formulate new betting odds for a possible bout between Nate Diaz and Tony Ferguson.
It’s Ferguson who is listed as a -157 betting favorite, with a +137 comeback on Diaz. The website also states that this match must take place at UFC 279 for action.
Ferguson was originally slated to face Li Jingliang, with Tony sporting a sizable underdog tag of +255, with Jingliang posted up at a favored flavor of -305. Nothing is set in stone yet, so stay tuned for updates to the fight card, and we’ll drop the betting lines for the final lineup tomorrow morning.
