UFC 279 is a Pay-Per-View card that we have mixed feelings about. It’s true that the two headlining fights on the main card are in the welterweight division and have a couple of our favourite fighters. The question is are these Hall of Fame legends past their best and now endangering their post-fight health and longevity. The drama will all unfold from the sold out T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States. So, the main event of the night features Khamzat “Borz” Chimaev vs  Nate Diaz. Also on the Main Card is the other welterweight fight between Li “The Leech” Jingliang and Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson. The rest of the card is solid, featuring Kevin Holland vs Daniel Rodriguez in an interesting catchweight fight. A few more of our favourites, Johnny Walker, Ion Cutelaba and Chris Barnett will be fighting on the night as well.  Here’s how UFC 279’s card stands right now:
