Episode details

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 8 bouts on this 13-bout UFC 279: 'Diaz vs, Ferguson' PPV event, formerly known as Chimaev vs Diaz... although three bouts on the main card have changed since recording the Vivi shows, none of the prelim bouts were affected leaving this show accurate despite the bout changes on the PPV portion of the card. "The UFC is back again on PPV this week, but it doesn’t feel like the matchmaker's got the memo. UFC 279 is headlined by a much-maligned bout between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev—a fight that seems primed to send Diaz packing from the promotion with a swift kick in the ass. In the co-main, former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson tries his hand at welterweight against China Top Team star Li Jingliang. At least the catchweight bout between Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez has all the look of a fascinating challenge." - Zane Simon 9.8.22 For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which already aired at 1PM Central today, Thurs., Sep. 8th., 2022, right here on our SC channel.
