UFC star Nate Diaz has accused ‘b****a**’ Khamzat Chimaev of marrying why he hasn’t returned to the octagon.
Diaz is in the last fight of his UFC contract since losing a decision to Leon Edwards last June.
But Diaz says his return to the Octagon is being delayed because Chimaev is getting married.
The pair will meet at UFC 276 on July 2.
Diaz said: “I’ve been trying to fight for a year and months. I also tried to fight Khamzat in the last month and a half but he was injured.
“He had visa issues, overweight and now his ass is getting married instead of fighting WTF?
“I’m trying to get a fight with a real fighter as soon as possible/in July.”
Chimaev, who recently married in his native Chechnya, responded to Diaz’s claim: “You’re funny, are you high? It seems you smoked.”
Diaz claims the UFC tried to book him for a fight against the rising star last December.
He told TMZ, “They’re coming at me [Chimaev]and I’m like, ‘Wait, don’t despise me like that by trying to offer me a fight with a newbie’.”

UFC legend Daniel Cormier says Diaz should complete his trilogy with Conor McGregor.
He told ESPN: “Well, I have two names. I know who he should be fighting and I know who he is likely to fight.
“Who he should be fighting is Nate Diaz. You should complete this trilogy. It’s a mighty fight.
“Both guys aren’t necessarily on the cover now. It’s a fun fight. We saw it twice and both delivered.
“I think it’s even, so I think he should fight Nate Diaz.
“I think who he’s going to fight is Michael Chandler because Michael Chandler has taken the UFC by storm.”
