Nick Diaz makes his UFC return against Robbie Lawler in a five-round featured bout at UFC 266 inside T-Mobile Arena on September 25 in Las Vegas. Diaz will walk inside the Octagon after more than five years away from the cage, following the suspension after his fight against Anderson Silva.
It will be the second time in the history of the promotion that a featured bout will go down as a five-round bout. The first time around when UFC held a featured bout as a five-round bout was when Nate Diaz took on Leon Edwards in a five-round fight at UFC 263.
After interestingly 209 weeks into the first fight, Diaz and Lawler will once again share the cage. Lawler will look to put the first KO loss of his MMA career behind him, while Nick Diaz will look to prove that he still got it despite the many years away from the cage.
