Nick Diaz vs Robbie Lawler confirmed for September

Multiple sources confirmed that Nick Diaz will be fighting against Robbie Lawler on Sep. 25th. This will be a rematch of a great fight that happened 17 years ago.

When they fought for the first time, it was April 2nd, 2004 at UFC 47 (how crazy is that), Nick Diaz stopped Lawler by KO in a second round in one of the all time greatest fights in UFC history. Interesting fact is that Nick Diaz, newcomer to UFC at that time (this was his 2nd fight in UFC) made $6000 that evening: $3000 for fighting and $3000 bonus. However Lawler made little bit more $8000 for fighting, winning bonus would have been $8000 if he won. Main fight of that card was first fight between Chuck Liddell and Tito Ortiz. Definitely on of the all time classics.

Rematch will happen at September 25th – UFC 266, main fight of the evening will be Jan Blachowicz vs Glover Teixeira.
