  • As he walked in, the boards plotting upcoming fights were seen in background 
  • One for UFC 276 showed Khamzat Chimaev matched up with Nate Diaz

Footage from a podcast has revealed potential upcoming UFC fights for later this year after inadvertently showing the background of Dana White’s office. 

White was on The Pivot Podcast at UFC headquarters and his entrance to the show took place in front of the matchboards. 

Every upcoming card is meticulously planned out in physical form and the camera captured some of the fights they have in the works.

UFC 276 on July 2 was of particular interest to fans, who managed to zoom in and see that Khamzat Chimaev and Nate Diaz were put together. 

Chimaev is one of the most ferocious up-and-coming stars and recently edged a decision against Gilbert Burns. 

Diaz has one fight remaining on his contract and many believe they would give him a softer challenge. He has repeatedly called on the organisation to let him fight out the deal but nothing has been announced. 

Israel Adesanya’s expected title defence against Jared Cannonier in the middleweight division was seen at the top of the UFC 276 mock-up. 

While Sean O’Malley looks set for his toughest challenge to date against Pedro Munhoz.

British star Paddy Pimblett’s proposed clash with Ottman Azaitar but the Liverpool fan favourite then took to social media to distance himself from the clash with the unbeaten lightweight. 

He wrote: ‘Only just came on me Twitter today Jesus it’s blew up over nothin. news to me ppl nice one for informing me [sic].’

Perhaps White was aware that the plans might be leaked as the UFC are typically careful about when they announce fights.

A fight between Diaz and Chimaev has been spoken about before and the Stockton man would be a huge underdog. 

Chimaev responded to the leak by sending the American a message: ‘Let’s fight skinny.’

Much will depend on how keen Diaz is to escape his UFC contract. Turning down fights can trigger an automatic extension and keep him in the promotion for longer so he may take the risk and step in with the Chechen-born phenom. 

Israel Adesanya is supposedly going to top the UFC 276 card against Jared Cannonier on July 2
