Gilbert Burns has done nothing but win since he moved up to welterweight. But, Nate Diaz has some issues with the UFC tapping Burns for a fight with the welterweight champ, Kamaru Usman.

Recently the UFC announced that Burns will challenge Usman in the headliner of the July 11th, UFC 251 card. The booking has transpired after Jorge Masvidal reportedly turned down the UFC’s offer for the title fight, and as he’s been criticizing the promotion’s compensation model.

Following the fight’s announcement, Diaz tweeted out this.

This is what’s wrong with people claiming they’re fighters settling for less cause they know they’re not worth sh-t you should’ve fought the next guy in line not the guy who would take less cause he’s told too that’s why no one will remember you guys. This isn’t a title fight
