Splits: Diaz 72% of handle, 70% of bets

This could be looked at as Ferguson’s (25-7) last stand in the UFC. The 38-year-old has lost four straight fights. They have all been against the top tier of the lightweight division including the most recent lightweight champion Charles Oliveira, but Ferguson hasn’t been competitive in any of the fights. He got beat up horrible for nearly five rounds against Justin Gaethje and most recently suffered a scary knockout at the hands of Michael Chandler.

Diaz (20-13) is also mostly a gatekeeper at age 37, but is also one of the more popular fighters in the welterweight division. Though he has lost three of his last four, and of course hasn’t been training for Ferguson as he was expecting to battle Khazmat Chimaev, he’ll enter as the underdog here.
