Former welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is not onboard on Nate Diaz’s request to fight Leon Edwards again. Diaz called out Edwards after his recent boxing win against fellow UFC veteran Jorge Masvidal.

“He can still fight, but he’s not a world class fighter,” Usman said on the “Pound 4 Pound” podcast. “Are you crazy? Throw Nate Diaz in there with Shavkat Rakhmonov, throw (him) in there with myself, throw (him) in there with JDM ( Jack Della Maddalena), throw (him) in there with Justin Gaethje. Come on!”

Nate Diaz on the tail-end of his career

After two decades as a pro fighter, Diaz is still one of the biggest names in fight sports. A big part of his fame came from going 1-1 with a prime Conor McGregor back in 2016. Now, however, the 39-year-old has left the UFC and is competing as a pro boxer.

“Nate Diaz is on the completely tail-end of his career,” Usman said. “Yes, of course he’s made a great name for himself and big shoutout to Diaz for still having that notoriety to be able to go out there and still get paychecks like this because he’s getting all these good fights on the outside, but come on. This ain’t Nate Diaz is going to come in and walk into fighting world-class mixed martial arts fighters right now in the UFC. Come on. That’s absurd.”
