Nick Diaz’s official return and welcoming him to the Octagon will be Robbie Lawler’s former opponent.

UFC President Dana White officially fights through Kevin Iole before the UFC shares on Tuesday news myself. The September 25th UFC 266 match isn’t the second untitled main event in UFC history. The first match is a UFC 263 Leon Edwards vs. Nate Diaz welterweight pair.

Robbie Lawler and Nick Diaz first met at UFC 47 in April 2004. At that time, both were sprout young prospects with almost the same experience. Diaz was 8-2 and Roller was 8-1.

The fun first round action didn’t last longer, as Diaz recorded a 1 minute 31 second knockout in the second round. Since then, both men have had a lot of success both inside and outside the UFC.

Unfortunately for both, they haven’t been treated very kindly in recent years. Roller (28-15) is currently 1-5 in six games since winning the UFC Gold. He lost four games in a row with his final victory over Donald Cerrone in 2017.

For 26-9’s brother Diaz, he hasn’t fought since the January 2015 clash with Anderson Silva at UFC 183. He suffered three consecutive losses as the middleweight case was originally recorded as a unanimous decision loss for Diaz. However, both men failed the post-match drug test and the match was invalidated.

Diaz finally saw his hand raised in the UFC’s return to BJ Penn in October 2011. The rest of UFC266 is not yet finalized.
