Nate Diaz's return to the UFC has been rescheduled for June 12 after the fan-favourite picked up a 'minor injury' ahead of his bout with Leon Edwards, according to ESPN.

Diaz, 36, has been out of action since competing for the BMF title against Jorge Masvidal at Madison Square Garden in November 2019, where he was stopped after three rounds due to cuts sustained.

The Stockton-born fighter was due to face British welterweight contender Edwards in the five-round co-main event of UFC 262, scheduled for May 15.

However, ESPN reports that Edwards v Diaz has been pushed back owing to an undisclosed, minor injury sustained by the 36-year-old.

The fight has subsequently been moved to UFC 263 next month in Glendale, Arizona, with the UFC opting to keep the bout intact rather than search for a late replacement to take on Edwards.

Birmingham-based Briton Edwards is hoping that a victory over Diaz will propel him into a title fight with welterweight king Kamaru Usman.

Edwards is the No 4-ranked contender at 170-pounds and is on a nine-fight winning streak, although his last bout against Belal Muhammad ended in a no contest due to an accidental eye poke.

Usman recently defeated Masvidal at UFC 261 in Jacksonville, Florida, and is expected to take on Colby Covington next. Edwards will look to put himself in a strong position should that fight fail to materialise.
