Robbie Lawler vs. Nick Diaz II? Dana White Says he Likes It…

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Nick Diaz, now that he’s eligible to fight again in August, but could a title fight with Robbie Lawler go down? Possibly?

As you likely heard, recently the Nevada Commission decided to dramatically slash Diaz’s five year suspension to 18 months. As a result, the star could be booked to fight again by mid 2016.

Recently White was asked by a fan on Twitter about the possibility of Lawler – Diaz II going down sometime this year, and the UFC President said “I like it”.

Sure, none of this means it will happen, or happen next (Diaz hasn’t won a bout since 2011), but it’s certainly a fight that would be huge. The outspoken fighter KO’d Lawler way back in 2004 at UFC 47.

The welterweight champ Lawler is coming off a razor thin, split decision win over Carlos Condit earlier this month.
