Nick Diaz vs Robbie Lawler UFC Odds: Lawler's Odds Continue To Grow

Let’s take you back to 2004. The Motorola Razr was the hottest phone out there, Facebook just launched, and the Red Sox finally broke their World Series curse. The point, 17 years ago was a completely different world than what we’re living in now.

That’s the first time Nick Diaz and Robbie Lawler went at it. In their first matchup, Diaz was put on the map when he knocked out Robbie Lawler who was a couple of years older than him at 22-years-old then.

Again, a lot has changed. Diaz was last seen at UFC 183 where he fought Anderson Silva. Diaz tested positive for marijuana after the fight and ended up getting banned for five years. The ban ended up being reduced but still, the question remains what kind of shape will Diaz be in with this being his first fight since 2015.

As for Lawler, he’s had a unique trip to this fight. He was supposed to be seen at UFC 255 but pulled out before the fight due to an injury. Previously, he lost four fights in a row to Rafael dos Anjos, Ben Askren, Colby Covington, and Neil Magny.

It’s safe to say that both have a lot to prove heading into this fight, despite the prep maybe not being what it needs to be. Recently, Robbie Lawler has became more of the favorite with the line moving heavily in his favor of the past couple of days.

The purse is unknown for the fight right now but 17 years ago, Nick Diaz won $3,000 for beating Robbie Lawler. It’s crazy to think how far the UFC has come since then, and we certainly know the prize for the prize will be much larger than it was at UFC 47.
