Interested in seeing the controlled chaos that was Nate Diaz’s final week as a UFC fighter? Well, we have good news for you, as Nate has just uploaded a 26-minute ‘Road 2 War’ video documenting all the drama leading up to and following UFC 279: Diaz vs. Chimaev.
Of course, Diaz vs. Chimaev never actually took place. Khamzat Chimaev blew his weigh-in, coming in several pounds over the welterweight limit. That led to the UFC shuffling the card, putting Nate Diaz against Tony Ferguson and Khamzat Chimaev against Kevin Holland. Both Khamzat and Nate left Las Vegas with wins on their record, and now Nate Diaz is a free agent.
This video compilation sheds some light on Diaz’s demeanor through all the turmoil. It features a little extra footage from the infamous canceled UFC 279 press conference, including some shots of Nate’s extensive crew throwing water bottles at Chimaev. As many have noted, the situation hardly seemed as chaotic as the Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor press conference brawl. Perhaps that’s thanks to UFC security, who were quick to push the literal busload of Team Diaz members out the side door.
