Schaub suspected UFC of dishonesty
Brendan Schaub, a former UFC fighter, expressed the opinion that the events leading up to UFC 279 happened for a reason.
“Thank God UFC 279 is still happening, but doesn’t this all seem fishy? Changed all three main battles of the tournament. Of course, all the guys will be well paid, but I don't think that this was all done because of Chimaev's weight. I think everyone got outplayed because UFC 279 didn't have a good trend."
Recall that Chimaev could not make weight and his fight with Diaz was canceled. Nate's new opponent is Tony Ferguson, and Khamzat will fight Kevin Holland.
