UFC 266 Odds: Oddsmakers Have Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler a Toss Up
Nate Diaz isn’t the only Diaz brother with insane popularity when it comes to the UFC world. His brother, Nick Diaz is just as popular, if not more. So, while Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler isn’t the headline event, it’s not a stretch to say it’s the most anticipated.
It has been an insane 6 years since we’ve seen Nick Diaz step into the octagon. He’s fought once since 2013 and still continues to be considered one of the most popular fighters in the entire world, not just within the UFC.
The last time he fought in the UFC he fell to one of the GOATs, Anderson Silva, via unanimous decision. But, the outcome was overturned after Silva tested positive for PEDs and Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana.
As for Robbie Lawler, he’s another UFC OG with tons of respect within the community. Lawler is a former UFC welterweight champion but he’s won just one single bout since 2016 and comes in having lost four straight.
So, what can we expect come September 25 when these two fighters step into the octagon? There’s no better place to look to find out than the latest Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler odds.
Like we mentioned earlier, Nick Diaz vs. Robbie Lawler isn’t the main event for this event. That belongs to Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega. But, Diaz vs. Lawler odds have been some of the most bet and most talked about in the UFC world since the fight was announced.

Nick Diaz is a +122 underdog at UFC 266. That means that oddsmakers are giving him an implied probability of 45% to win the fight. As for Lawler, his -144 odds are indicative of a 59% chance of victory.
