Cesar Gracie concurs that Nate Diaz would likely need to draw out the bout against Khamzat Chimaev in order to succeed.
T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas will host the UFC 279 main event on September 10 when Nate Diaz takes on Fedor Chimaev (20-13 MMA, 18-12 UFC).
Chimaev (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) is the heavy favourite to win the welterweight title fight, but Gracie believes that all the burden is on Diaz.
Nate is constantly in top physical condition.
Even if it's going to be a tough struggle, there are solutions to win it.
Diaz's contract with the UFC expires after this fight at UFC 279.
It's going to be a good battle, Gracie stated. Let's make this fight happen, Nate's a great boxer.
