LAS VEGAS – Khamzat Chimaev wasn’t impressed at all by what he saw from Nate Diaz. The UFC contender thought Diaz looked poor in his performance on Saturday night, despite Diaz finishing veteran Tony Ferguson with a guillotine choke in the main event of UFC 279 . Chimaev (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) was supposed to fight Diaz, but ended up fighting and submitting Kevin Holland in the co-main event , after he missed weight by 7.5 pounds for on Friday morning for what was supposed to be a welterweight bout with Diaz. Chimaev says the result would’ve been much different for Diaz, if their fight came to fruition. “If I fought him, I’d kill him,” Chimaev told reporters at the UFC 279 post-fight press conference. “I’d be in the jail, so maybe I have to be happy.” Related Kevin Holland aims to rebound from UFC 279 with fight against Stephen Thompson or Daniel Rodriguez Khamzat Chimaev on fan backlash for missing weight at UFC 279: 'I don't care' But it is not just that Chimaev is confident in his skills.
