Nate Diaz’s final match in the UFC is in the books, and he emerged victoriously. Tony Ferguson was a last-minute fill-in after Khamzat Chimaev couldn’t make weight. In the end, it didn’t slow Diaz down.

In the end, Diaz submitted Ferguson in the third round of the fight. Diaz is expected to leave his UFC career behind him after that headlining fight.

UFC 279 went down in Last Vegas, Nevada, and a crowd packed the T-Mobil Arena for a card that saw several changes. Diaz had to alter a lot of his strategy, but he won the fight after Ferguson went for a takedown and Diaz countered to latch on a guillotine choke.

The fight was over quickly after Nate Diaz latched on his chokehold. There wasn’t anything Tony Ferguson could do at that point.

Nate Diaz is wrapping up his UFC contract with this fight. Now he has the freedom to seek out other opportunities, such as fighting Jake Paul down the line, if they can make that big money fight happen.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
