Khamzat Chimaev claims Nate Diaz turned down TEN offers to fight him after UFC star slams Swede and Conor McGregor

KHAMZAT CHIMAEV has accused UFC superstar Nate Diaz of turning down a fight with him "ten times" in an X-rated Twitter rant.

The UFC tried to pit the undefeated Russian against Diaz last year but the fan favourite scoffed at the notion of fighting the surging welterweight contender.

And Chimaev reminded Diaz of that on Monday morning after seeing his tweeting mocking himself and UFC poster boy Conor McGregor.

He tweeted: "B**** you're not ashamed to open your mouth at all you refused a fight 10 times @NateDiaz209."

Diaz drew the ire of the Chechen clubber by tweeting: "Kamzits and Conor are on the injured p***y list so I don’t know why they’re talkin' s**t when they broken."

UFC fans were in a tizzy last week when footage from inside the matchmakers' room appeared to show a summer showdown between Chimaev and Diaz was in the works.

"So when we go in there, we’ll have placeholders in place.

"None of that stuff are done deals. Some of those are just placeholders.

When pressed on the status of the fight, he replied: “I don’t know.”
