After more than six years away from the Octagon, former Strikeforce 170-pound titleholder Nick Diaz will rematch ex-UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler at the UFC 266 pay-per-view (PPV) event, scheduled for TONIGHT (Sat., Sept. 25, 2021) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Lawler was stopped by Diaz when they first went to war at UFC 47 way back in April 2004.
Lawler (28-15, 1 NC), now 39, is the loser of four straight and hasn’t seen action since falling to Neil Magny back in summer 2020. As for Diaz (26-9, 2 NC), who turned 38 just a few weeks back, he hasn’t won a fight in nearly a decade and spent the last six years on vacation.
