Fight fans will have to wait a little longer to watch the return of UFC superstar Nate Diaz, according to a recent report.
Yahoo Sport’s Kevin Iole reported on Monday night that Diaz’s fight with No. 3-ranked welterweight Leon Edwards has been postponed until next month.
The two were set to fight at UFC 262 on May 15 in the promotions first-ever five-round co-main event not involving a title. According to Iole, the two will meet at UFC 263 on June 12.
Iole reported that Diaz has suffered a “minor injury,” however the setback won’t delay his return too long.
Diaz hasn’t fought since November 2019, when he competed against Jorge Masvidal for the “Baddest Motherf*****” title.
