Khamzat Chimaev vs Nate Diaz agreed to for UFC 279 main event

One of UFC’s biggest stars Nate Diaz has agreed to fight on of their biggest up and comers in Khamzat Chimaev in the main event of UFC 279

Khamzat is undefeated and is coming off a top 5 win over Gilbert Burns, Diaz is 20-13 (4-5 at WW) with the promotion, currently unranked and has lost 3 of his last 4 fights.

On paper the fight doesn’t make a ton of sense but Diaz has been pushing for a fight or to be released from the promotion in a very public feud and despite Diaz being unranked and losing more often than winning lately, he is on of the companies biggest stars.
