Nate Diaz vs. Leon Edwards won’t be happening this month at UFC 262.

Diaz (20-12 MMA, 15-10 UFC) has suffered a minor injury, the exact nature of which is unknown at this time, and his welterweight matchup Edwards (18-3 MMA, 10-2 UFC) has been postponed from the May 15 event to UFC 263 on June 12. It will remain a five-round fight.

MMA Junkie verified the change with multiple people close to the situation following an initial report from Yahoo! Sports. The people requested anonymity because UFC has yet to make an official announcement.

UFC 263 will takes place at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
