UFC 279 ‘Fight Motion’: Watch highlights of Nate Diaz’s potential final octagon fight in super slow motion

·1 min read

Nate Diaz bid the UFC farewell in style.

Diaz (21-13 MMA, 16-11 UFC), who originally was scheduled to face Khamzat Chimaev in the UFC 279 main event, fought Tony Ferguson at T-Mobile Arena, instead, in what may have been his final fight in the octagon. It was a wild contest in which Diaz pulled out some of his old tricks, like turning his back to walk away before resuming the fight. He was able to bloody up Ferguson and eventually submitted him in Round 4.

In the co-main event, Khamzat Chimaev (12-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) ran through Kevin Holland by submitting him with a D’Arce choke in the first round.

You can watch it all unfold in super-slow motion in the UFC 279 “Fight Motion” video highlights above.

Also featured are highlights of Irene Aldana’s unique up-kick body shot finish of Macy Chiasson, Johnny Walker’s first-round submission of Ion Cutelaba, Jailton Almeida’s bonus-winning submission of Anton Turkalj, Chris Barnett’s TKO of Jake Collier and more.
