Nate Diaz teases UFC champ Kamaru Usman on social media

UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman and his division colleague Nate Diaz have been trading barbs with each other on social media. Taking to Twitter, it was Diaz first who poked fun at Usman. Posting the Nigerian Nightmare’s photo, Diaz did not like the idea of UFC booking a rematch between the champ and Colby Covington. The Stockton Slogger is of the view that Usman looks up to the UFC management to determine who he will defend his title against instead of calling fighters out himself.

The champ did not stay silent for long. Usman told Diaz that he can call UFC Executive Hunter Campbell and book a fight against him next if he wants to. The Nigerian Nightmare tweeted: “I see you 209. If you really want this 187 then call your boy hunter.”


Kamaru Usman is yet to lose in the UFC. He has defended his title four times. He will next face Covington, who he knocked out at UFC 245. Usman last fought and made it 2-0 against Jorge Masvidal.

On the other hand, Diaz last faced Leon Edwards at UFC 263. The Stockton-born lost the fight on decision but left Edwards wobbly in the last round after almost knocking him out cold.
