UFC icon Nate Diaz recently took aim at Khamzat Chimaev, accusing the newest MMA star of coming up with several excuses to avoid a fight with him.

The California native has previously distanced himself from a fight with Chimaev but has lately said he’s been more open to the idea, only for ‘Borz’ to flake on the bout.

“I been trying to fight for a year and months I also tried to fight Kamzat for the last month and a half but he was hurt, had visa issues, overweight and now his b******* is off getting married instead of fighting wtf? I’m trying to get a fight wit a real fighter asap/July LFG,” Diaz wrote on social media.

Chimaev saw the funny side but also suggested that Diaz may not be in his right mind for suggesting he is ducking a fight with the MMA legend.

“You are funny, are you high? It seems like you been smoking,” he replied.

Diaz, who is growing increasingly frustrated, has just one fight on his current deal and has been calling for the UFC to get him an opponent for months, but his cries appear to have fallen on deaf ears.

The 37-year-old recently took the drastic step of publicly disrespecting the UFC by urinating on its headquarters to demonstrate that no matter what, they will not release him from his contract.

Diaz hasn’t fought since suffering defeat against Leon Edwards at by unanimous decision at UFC 263 last June and has spent much of his time out of the Octagon trying to fight Dustin Poirier.

For whatever reason, that fight hasn’t happened and Diaz is now willing to face Chimaev instead after previously saying the undefeated welterweight didn’t deserve to fight him.

“They’re coming at me with [Khamzat], and I’m like, ‘Hold on, don’t disrespect me like that, trying to offer me a fight with a rookie,” Diaz told TMZ Sports in December.

“I’m cool, you got four fights in the UFC. Don’t even talk my name.”

Since then, Chimaev has moved from prospect to contender by beating former welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns at UFC 273 in April, making him a much more worthy adversary in the eyes of Diaz.
