It’s been another whirlwind weekend in the world of mixed martial arts, particularly for the UFC.
After the drama of Friday’s cancelled press conference and a botched weigh-in for Khamzat Chimaev, the upper end of the card was entirely rearranged, scuppering last week’s conversations and predictions.
But that’s the fight game, as they say.
We wound up with a complete technical mismatch in the co-main event as Khamzat Chimaev took on Kevin Holland in a catch-weight bout despite a near 10lbs difference on weigh-in day, while the main event landed Nate Diaz a $50,000 bonus for his showing against Tony Ferguson, both fighters originally slated to face different opponents.
Listen above to the breakdown of the fall out, we’ll get Myles’ thoughts on what should happen regarding weight classes sooner rather than later and look ahead to the meeting of Peter Queally and Benson Henderson at Bellator 285 on Friday week.
