Dana White admits Chimaev vs Diaz fight was a bad idea
“After watching this fight, you understand that the fight of Khamzat against Nate Diaz would be bad, it would not be good. I know the fans are mad at Khamzat for not making weight and everything, but for God's sake. What he did to Kevin Holland... did you see Holland posting a photo the next day where his eyes were completely red from fucking strangulation? Just kapets,” said the functionary.
Recall that the Chimaev-Diaz fight was supposed to head UFC 279, but Khamzat did not make weight. So the fight was cancelled. Ferguson became Diaz's new rival, and Holland became Chimaeva's. Nate and Khamzat won their fights by submission.
