Marlon Vera believes that Diaz can surprise Chimaev
Chimaev against Diaz will headline UFC 279 in September at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, United States. Borz was deemed the meeting’s overwhelming favorite. Nate will quit the UFC after this bout.
Few people give Nate a chance. Nonetheless, he is a tenacious combatant who will not surrender easy. And although everyone expects Chimaev to defeat Diaz, Vera does not rule out an unexpected outcome.
“It’s a battle between a guy with a high profile and someone who needs that high profile and wants to fight for the championship. Nate is not your average fighter.
He comes out to battle and is able to demonstrate something to Chimaev that we have never seen before. Diaz has experience, is tough, has strong jiu-jitsu abilities, and is capable of striking.
On the other side, he will confront a young, successful boxer. Recently, he fought one of the finest welterweights, Gilbert Burns,” Vera said in an interview with Helen Yee.
