Why Bet on Nick Diaz
Following Diaz’s KO win over Lawler at UFC 47 in April 2004, both fighters have had a long and exciting MMA Career so far.
The Stockton native, Nick, holds 26 wins, 9 losses, and 2 no-contests records. That along with a Jiu-Jitsu Black belt, and is known as a scrapper.
Diaz puts on a show every time he steps into the octagon. There is little to believe that this won’t be the case.
Fans are worried about how the fight inactivity may impact Nick’s performance, after over 6 and a half years from his last match. However, he has been looking excellent in his workouts.
Why Bet on Robbie Lawler
Robbie Lawler is as tough as nails. He may have lost his first match against Diaz all those years ago; either way, his career resurgence was a sight to see.
He conquered UFC Gold and had two of the best title defense matches in the wars he fought against Rory MacDonald and Carlos Condit.
Lawler holds a UFC record of 28 wins, 15 losses, and 1 No-contest. Is a seasoned fighter who has his most recent match a little over a year ago.
Being by far the most active coming into this contest, Lawler should have the advantage for the match. But it may not be enough to feel comfortable.
Final Betting Analysis: Diaz vs. Lawler
This match-up has no impact on the current division, with an inactive Nick, facing a Lawler with no victories since July 2017, the title picture will not be shaken, nor other fighters should worry much about the rankings.
However, there was a sole reason this fight was made, putting up a major show for the fans, and it seems like that is exactly what we are going to get.
If the Stockton native manages to score a clear win against Robbie Lawler, there could be a chance for him to make his way up in the division once again, so he has to be focused on repeating the result from back in 2004
Anything could happen once these fighters meet up, but for our pick, we are going with Nick Diaz, as the possibilities that a victory would create for the Stockton fighter would be exciting to see.
