CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Dec. 11, 2021, with two thrilling world championship fights and a Bantamweight banger guaranteed to deliver fireworks. Lightweight champion, Charles Oliveira, will go for his first successful title defense when he takes on No. 1-ranked contender, Dustin Poirier, in the ESPN+streamed pay-per-view (PPV) main event. In UFC 269’s co-headliner, the greatest women’s fighter of all time, Amanda Nunes, defends her 135-pound crown against gritty No. 5-ranked Julianna Pena, while No. 15-seeded Bantamweight contender, Raulian Paiva, and Contender Series star, Sean O’Malley, aim to steal the show.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

The fight is a rematch of their fight at UFC 47 (watch the full fight here) all the way back in 2004. Diaz won their first fight via knockout at 1:31 of round two, improving to 9-2 as a professional mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter. Lawler dropped to 8-2 as a result of the outcome; however, both men were destined for greater things.

Diaz amassed an enormous following thanks to his anti-establishment attitude. A win over B.J. Penn was followed by fights against Carlos Condit and Georges St-Pierre for the UFC interim Welterweight and UFC Welterweight titles, respectively. He subsequently fought Anderson Silva.

Lawler would go to fight in Strikeforce before returning to UFC and capturing the promotion’s Welterweight title with a split decision win over Johnny Hendricks. He successfully defended the crown against Rory McDonald and Condit.
