It’s official: Nick Diaz is fighting again. Diaz (26-9 MMA, 7-6 UFC) returns to action Sept. 25 when he rematches former welterweight champion Lawler (28-15 MMA, 13-9 UFC) at UFC 266, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
The UFC has officially announced that Diaz will be taking on Robbie Lawler at UFC 266 on September 25 this year. This will be the second time that Diaz and Lawler have faced off, since their first fight against each other taking place 17 years ago at UFC 47. Diaz won the contest via second-round knockout.
Nate Diaz, Nick’s younger brother, made history earlier this year at UFC 263 when he competed in the first five-round, non-headlining, non-title bout ever held on a UFC pay-per-view with his decision loss to Leon Edwards. Now, Nick has the chance to do the same and will become one of only four men to hold that distinction.
