Without a professional fight since 2015, when he faced Anderson Silva at UFC 183, Nick Diaz may return soon. Last Wednesday (7), Dana White said he intends to make Diaz vs Robbie Lawler in the co-main event at UFC 266, on September 25, in Las Vegas (USA). The main event will be Alexander Volkanovski vs Brian Ortega for the featherweight belt.

If it really happens, it will be their second fight. They fought in 2004, at UFC 47. Then, Diaz won by TKO in R2. Nick Diaz (37) has 26 wins and 9 losses, and before fighting against Anderson Silva, he had been defeated by Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit. His last win was in 2011, against BJ Penn, at UFC 137. Two years older, Robbie Lawler (28-15) isn’t at his best moment in the UFC. Former welterweight champion, he has lost to Rafael dos Anjos, Ben Askren, Colby Covington and Neil Magny.
