When was the last time Nick Diaz fought in the UFC? Fan favorite makes return at UFC 266

2,428 days.

That's how long it has been since MMA fan-favorite Nick Diaz has been inside the octagon, but that all changes this weekend at UFC 266.

For the first time since February 2015, Diaz will step inside the UFC cage this Saturday and take on former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler.

Diaz's last fight, which was well over six years ago, ended in a loss to Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 183. The result was eventually changed to a no contest after it was revealed Silva had tested positive for PEDs. 

MORE: Best bets, odds and predictions for UFC 266

Even though he's only fought three times in the past decade and hasn't won any of those fights, Diaz's return to the UFC at age 38 has plenty of fans excited because of his cult hero-like status. 

Despite never winning a title in the UFC, Diaz held gold in Strikeforce and was once considered one of the most exciting fighters in mixed martial arts. 

His return bout against Lawler is a rematch from their 2004 bout at UFC 47, which saw Diaz win via knockout in the second round. 

Why did Nick Diaz stop fighting?

Diaz was suspended on multiple occasions because of failing drug tests for marijuana use, including a five-year ban courtesy of the Nevada State Athletic Commission in September 2015. 

He appealed that suspension and got it reduced to 18 months and it was eventually lifted in August 2016. He has since signed an agreement with NSAC to compete again.

Diaz has been away from the sport for over six years but will return against Robbie Lawler this Saturday (AEST) at UFC 266 in a five-round mididleweight bout. 

Nick Diaz career MMA record

Diaz has a career record of 26-9 (2 NC), with 13 wins coming by way of knockout and another eight via submission.

He held the Strikeforce welterweight title in 2010 and defended it successfully on three occasions before opting to vacate the title in 2011. 

In the UFC, Diaz has had 14 fights and won seven of them. His last win for the promotion came in October 2011, when he defeated BJ Penn via unanimous decision. 

Diaz lost to Carlos Condit in a fight for the UFC interim welterweight title in February 2012 before going down to Georges St-Pierre in a title fight in March 2013.

His last fight inside the UFC octagon was a loss to Anderson Silva, though it was eventually changed to a no-contest after Silva failed a drug test.

10 Best – Greatest UFC fights of 2015

A great fight is a perfect storm. Put two fighters together and you never know what you’ll get, but when both have the intention of making a statement against each other and the styles mesh, it becomes something more than just an athletic competition. When that happens, there’s nothing better in all of sports.

Here are 10 of the best fights from 2015, as the Highly Unofficial awards season continues.

10 – Gian Villante-Corey Anderson
Corey Anderson’s first pro loss was a painful one, mainly due to the teeth he had to get fixed after eating a knee from Gian Villante, but someday he may look at the third-round knockout defeat as the turning point in his career, because he proved that he didn’t just have the talent to succeed, but the heart as well. This was a dig down deep bout, and both Anderson and Villante did that throughout, with Long Island’s Villante - down on one scorecard heading into the final round and even on the other two – leaving the judges out of it with a sudden third-round finish.

9 – Nicolas Dalby-Darren Till
Fighters with unbeaten records often fight a certain way when they reach the elite level of the sport, choosing to protect that “0” instead of using the style that got them to the big show in the first place. Welterweights Nicolas Dalby and Darren Till don’t fall into that category, and their October Fight of the Night in Dublin proved it. Yet the biggest takeaway from this three-round battle was Dalby’s miraculous final round comeback, one that didn’t win him the fight, but that did do enough for him to keep his undefeated record by way of a draw.

8 – Edson Barboza-Paul Felder | Read: Family first for Barboza
It’s not a Fight of the Year list without an entry (or two) featuring Edson Barboza. Meeting up with fellow striker Paul Felder in July, it was assumed that, like most matchups of this sort, two strikers would equal a wrestling match. Not here. Putting their varied array of punishing and diverse stand-up techniques on display for 15 thrilling minutes, Barboza and Felder showed just what striking looks like at the highest level of the game, and while it was Barboza leaving with the decision win that night, there were no losers in this bout.

7 – Yair Rodriguez-Charles Rosa | WATCH ON FIGHT PASS
In boxing, you rarely see two hot prospects meeting on the way up. It just doesn’t happen. In the UFC though, a great matchup is a great matchup, and Sean Shelby put together a classic one between featherweights Yair Rodriguez and Charles Rosa at UFC 188 in June and they stole the show with a mix of flashy striking, slick groundwork and guts and grit. When it was over, Rodriguez emerged with a well-deserved decision win, and it’s not out of the realm of possibility that the next time they meet will be with a world title up for grabs.

6 - Brian Ortega-Thiago Tavares | Read: Ortega a Big Name Hunter
Great MMA fights rarely have every element of the sport flowing through it from start to finish. Brian Ortega’s third-round stoppage of Thiago Tavares was the exception. From slick groundwork to crisp stand-up exchanges, from two guys going for the finish throughout to gut checks for both featherweights, this was a fun one to watch, and in beating the veteran Tavares, Ortega announced his arrival to the big show in a big way in his second Octagon bout, and it’s clear that we will be hearing a lot more from “T-City” in the future.

5 – John Lineker-Francisco Rivera
Proving that, in combat sports, the best defense is often placed around deyard, bantamweights John Lineker and Francisco Rivera threw all caution to the wind in their UFC 191 clash in September. What resulted was a frenetic 2:08 of toe-to-toe slugging capped off by a Lineker guillotine choke that ended the bout and allowed the entire fight world to take a deep breath again.

4 – Andrei Arlovski-Travis Browne | WATCH ON FIGHT PASS
I don’t know whether I love this fight because it captured the great comeback of Andrei Arlovski in four minutes and 41 seconds or just because two big guys swinging bombs at each other for nearly five minutes will always get the top spot in my heart. Whatever it is, Arlovski and Browne didn’t fight like good friends on May 23. This was a bitter enemies’ kind of fight, with Arlovski putting Browne in trouble several times, Browne coming back with a knockdown, and “The Pit Bull” finally putting the finishing touches on his former training partner with a barrage of blows. It was compelling from a storyline point of view and in terms of pure visceral action, a mix that made it an easy pick for this list.

3 – Tony Ferguson-Edson Barboza | What Ferguson's win meant
Win or lose, Edson Barboza can’t be in a bad fight, and in December he lived up to that Action Hero reputation once more against Tony Ferguson, who is must see TV in his own right. While Barboza’s devastating striking attack was on display once more against the Californian, “El Cucuy” took it all and came back firing with a diverse array of techniques that eventually forced Barboza into an ill-advised takedown attempt that produced Ferguson’s submission finish.

2 – Daniel Cormier-Alexander Gustafsson | Full recap of UFC 192
It’s not the legacy Alexander Gustafsson wants for himself, and he will do everything in his power to one day wear UFC championship gold, but for now, he should never hang his head about being in what are likely the two greatest 205-pound title fights ever. Of course, the Swede came up short, first against Jon Jones in 2013 and then in October against Daniel Cormier, but oh, what fights they were. Looking to prove that the vacant title he won against Anthony Johnson was no paper crown, Cormier went into those dark places only real fighters are willing to go to and after surviving Gustafsson’s attacks and coming back with his own furious assault, he came out with a split decision victory and silenced any doubters once and for all.

1 – Robbie Lawler-Rory MacDonald | WATCH ON FIGHT PASS

Most fight fans would have watched Robbie Lawler and Rory MacDonald stare each other down in the center of the Octagon after the fourth round of their UFC 189 war in July and said ‘okay, Fight of the Year.’ It was that good, a moment of calm in the midst of a punishing 21-minute battle, as the two battered and bloodied welterweights assessed each other for a few seconds before returning to their corner. A minute into the next round, Lawler finished MacDonald, who was perilously close to taking the welterweight title in the third frame. Even more notable is that according to the scorecards, Lawler needed a finish in the final round to keep his title. Drama, momentum swings, displays of courage that show just what it takes to be a professional fighter – this fight had it all.

By all accounts, 2015 was the most successful year the UFC has experienced in quite a while. Sure, the promotion still lacked one of its biggest stars in former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, and it did lose two of its biggest stars, Jon Jones and Anderson Silva, for prolonged periods of time, but those losses didn’t affect the promotion’s bottom line.

Yes, injuries were still a major concern in 2015, but those injuries didn’t seem to hurt events quite as much as they did in 2013 and 2014. Even when then-UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo was forced from what was expected to be the biggest fight of the year, the promotion still put on one of its best events with UFC 189. If you want to know how good 2015 was for the UFC, just consider that Ronda Rousey lost her UFC women’s bantamweight title in a devastating fashion, and it didn’t cause the promotion all that much duress.

One reason the UFC didn’t stress too much over Rousey’s defeat may be thanks to a 27-year-old Irish fighter named Conor McGregor, who emerged as a fit-for-superstardom fighter. The UFC should also thank the woman who beat Rousey, Holly Holm, who emerged as a quiet media darling in the wake of her win. With the UFC returning on January 2, 2016, now is a good time to reflect on the promotion’s best moments in 2015.

Fight of the year

3. Andrei Arlovski vs. Travis Browne — UFC 191

If you wanted to see two extremely large men try to knock each other out, then this was the fight for you in 2015. Early in the first round, Travis Browne survived a vicious onslaught from Andrei Arlovski. As the round progressed, Arlovski threatened the KO a second time. Again, he was unable to finish the fight. With 90 seconds left in the first round, Arlovski again had Browne wobbled, but a right from Browne put Arlovski to the mat.

When Arlovski returned to his feet he put more punishment on Browne, who struggled to stay on his feet. An uppercut and a right from Arlovski ended the night for Browne. After his win, Dana White, UFC president, revealed that Arlovski was almost pulled from the fight in the days leading up to the event due to an injured calf.

2. Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier — UFC 182

The buildup to this fight was long and often ugly; even after it was over, the victor, Jon Jones couldn’t help but get on the microphone and tell the crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena that he didn’t like his vanquished opponent. The fight lasted all five rounds, but the reality was that Daniel Cormier was only in it for the first three.

In the fourth round, Jones let everyone know why he may one day go down as the greatest fighter in the history of mixed martial arts. Cormier was supposed to be Jones’ equal. He was supposed to give Jones a tough test, and he was supposed to have a chance to win. But he did and was none of those things. It was a great performance by Jones, the then-UFC light heavyweight champion.

1. Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald 2 — UFC 189

Things started slow in this one. For the first five minutes, UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler (pictured above) and top-ranked challenger Rory MacDonald did little but figure out range and show each other the respect their skills deserved. In the second round, Lawler opened up and bloodied MacDonald’s nose, using effective striking in the pocket. Round three was more of the same — until about 30 seconds left.

That’s when MacDonald wobbled Lawler with a headkick and moved in for the kill, throwing everything he had, but Lawler took the onslaught and survived the round. Round four was also MacDonald’s round, and Lawler’s corner seemed a little worried between the fourth and fifth. Lawler turned it on in the final round, finishing the fight when he connected with MacDonald’s already crushed nose, and MacDonald collapsed in pain, unable to continue. This was the kind of fight that fans will talk about for years to come.

Submission of the year

Ronda Rousey speaks to media at a press conference leading up to her fight against Holly Holm in UFC 183 at the Glendale Fighting  Club on October 27, 2015 in Glendale, California.

3. Benson Henderson vs. Brandon Thatch — UFC Fight Night 60

Benson Henderson, a former UFC lightweight champion, looked to have three strikes against him entering this fight. First, he took the fight on short notice. Second, he moved up to welterweight for the first time. Third, he fought in Brandon Thatch’s hometown in the main event of this card. Halfway through the fourth round, Henderson nailed a takedown and easily passed from half guard to side control to back control. The position change was a mixture of Henderson’s experience and Thatch’s inexperience. Henderson then softened Thatch up with strikes, put in the hooks, and sank in the rear naked choke, forcing the tap.

2. Takeya Mizugaki vs. Aljamain Sterling — UFC on FOX 15

Entering this fight, Takeya Mizugaki was the No. 6-ranked fighter in the bantamweight division, while Aljamain Sterling was a 10-0 fighter on his way up. With four minutes left in the third round, Sterling took down Mizugaki against the cage. Sterling then transitioned to Mizugaki’s back, and Mizugaki did his best to escape the grasp of Sterling. When the clock showed three minutes left in the round, Mizugaki spun and took top position, but in the transition Sterling was able to secure an arm-triangle choke from the bottom, forcing Mizugaki to tap.

1. Ronda Rousey vs. Cat Zingano — UFC 184

It was quick, it was brutal and it was the best submission of 2015. At UFC 184, then-women’s bantamweight champion, Rousey (pictured above), met No. 1 Cat Zingano in the main event and made things look too easy. When the fight started, the two were a combined 19-0 in MMA, but 14 seconds into the fight, Zingano was handed her first defeat via a Rousey armbar. It was a thing of beauty, and if you have a minute or two, you should watch the submission a few times.

Knockout of the year

3. Jeremy Stephens vs. Dennis Bermudez — UFC 189

One day after missing weight for his featherweight fight, Jeremy Stephens delivered a stunning knockout of Dennis Bermudez. In the third round, Bermudez walked Stephens back toward the cage, and a second after he touched the cage with his right hand, Stephens landed a perfect flying knee that dropped Bermudez. Immediately after the knockout, Stephens jumped out of the cage and shook the hand of UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta.

2. Thomas Almeida vs. Brad Pickett — UFC 189

Thomas Almeida may not be a household name for UFC fans, but the 20-0 Brazilian is a fighter you should keep on your radar. In his four fights in the UFC, Almeida has won one “Fight of the Night” bonus and three “Performance of the Night” bonuses, with his last three fights ending by knockout. His UFC 189 knockout of Brad Pickett is his most spectacular UFC finish to date.

The first round saw each fighter stagger the other, with the round ending with Almeida smiling and covered in blood. The end came quickly in the second round when, seconds after Pickett missed a flying knee, Almeida delivered a flying knee of his own and Pickett fell to the mat with his arms outstretched over his head. The fight ended 29 seconds into the round.

1. Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm — UFC 193

This may have been the most unexpected knockout of the year. Sure, we all knew that Holm had the background and skills to knock out Rousey; after all, Holm was a multiple-time boxing champion, but c’mon, this was Ronda Rousey, the unbeatable UFC women’s bantamweight champion. Holm seemed to dominate the fight (pictured above), but everyone watching knew that one mistake could have ended her night early, allowing Rousey to retain the title. That slip never came, and when Holm put her shin across the face of Rousey to end the fight, she took the title and stamped her name on best knockout of the year.

Fighter of the year

Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor in their featherweight title fight during UFC 194 on December 12, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

3. Rafael dos Anjos

When Rafael dos Anjos fought Anthony Pettis in March, not many people expected dos Anjos to dethrone the UFC lightweight champion, but he did, earning a unanimous decision victory in a fight where he was never in any danger. Dos Anjos dominated Pettis from start to finish, winning each of the five rounds on the scorecards. When he faced Donald Cerrone in December, dos Anjos still hadn’t made believers out of all MMA fans. A lot of people thought that Cerrone would walk out of the cage that night as the new champion. But he didn’t. In fact, Cerrone didn’t even make it out of the first round, getting knocked out at the 66-second mark of Round 1.

2. Holly Holm

Holm started 2015 as a good MMA fighter, but one who many thought needed a lot more time to develop. In her first fight of the year, Holm earned a split decision over Raquel Pennington. In her next fight, she took a unanimous decision over Marion Reneau. In her last fight, she knocked out Rousey. Wait, what was that last one? Yes, Holm knocked out Rousey. But she did more than that; she made the woman who had been the only UFC women’s bantamweight champion look lost in the cage. Rousey had no answer for Holm’s game plan throughout the entire fight, which ended with Holm turning out the lights on Rousey in the second round with a head kick.

1. Conor McGregor

All McGregor (pictured above) did was exactly what he said he was going to do: Knock out each of his opponents and win the UFC featherweight title. McGregor started his year with a second-round TKO of Dennis Siver. He followed that with a second-round TKO over Chad Mendes, and he finished the year by capturing the UFC featherweight title with a 13-second knockout of Jose Aldo. During that time, he became the only fighter to rival Rousey in popularity. McGregor’s goals for 2016 include defending his featherweight title and moving up to lightweight to capture that title.

Upset of the year

3. Gegard Mousasi vs. Uriah Hall

This fight would have been tough for Uriah Hall even if he hadn’t taken it on short notice, but he did, and many in the MMA world saw Gegard Mousasi earning a win over Hall with little effort. For most of the first round it appeared that Mousasi would do just that. He controlled almost the entirety of the round, forcing Hall to avoid his strikes and submission attempts. The tables turned almost immediately at the start of the second round, as Hall landed a jumping spinning back kick and followed it with a flying knee. Mousasi dropped to the mat where Hall finished him with punches. It was a memorable performance and a stunning upset for Hall.

2. Rafael dos Anjos vs. Anthony Pettis

Pettis was poised for a long reign atop the UFC’s lightweight division. He hadn’t lost since 2011, and he was heavily favored over dos Anjos. However, 25 minutes after their fight began, not only did Pettis lose, but he lost every round — none were even close. Dos Anjos captured the title with the win and sent Pettis crashing back down to the land of the mortals.

1. Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm

Rousey was portrayed as a nearly mythical beast; a fighter who couldn’t lose; and a fighter who wouldn’t lose. Fans were led to believe that she had the skills, toughness, and mental fortitude to face any test head on and plow right through it — and she did, at least for a while. Holm (pictured above) reminded us that there is always someone out there just a little better and that with one mistake, mental or physical, that person can take everything you worked for.

3. Nick Diaz suspension

When the Nevada State Athletic Commission handed Nick Diaz a five-year suspension for a failed drug test following UFC 183, the responses involved shock, amazement, and anger. The NSAC justified the suspension by saying it was the third time Diaz had failed a marijuana test. However, many felt that the punishment’s severity had a lot to do with the fact that Diaz had the audacity to actually stand up to the Commission and fight the test, instead of just falling on his sword and begging for forgiveness. The uproar over the suspension continues, and right now the two sides are discussing a settlement.

2. Drug tests

On July 1, the UFC and the United States Anti-Doping Agency began a partnership that set up a drug-testing program for all UFC fighters. The move was applauded by many who claimed that the UFC’s drug testing program was far below what was required for the sport. The program is still in its early stages, but it has already caught fighters doping.

1. Free agency

The UFC is the biggest player in mixed martial arts, but it’s not the only one. The two other big MMA agencies are Bellator and World Series of Fighting. Right now, big-name UFC fighters who have fought out their contracts are paying attention to these two promotions. In the past, fighters tended to re-sign with the UFC before their contracts expired, but with the possibility of becoming free agents and getting the best financial deals, they are opting to fight out those contracts and listen to offers from other promotions.

This is a huge deal for the sport, and the possibility exists that it will raise fighter salaries as promotions realize that they don’t want fighters hitting free agency. The biggest free agents at this time are former UFC lightweight champion Henderson, former Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem, and young, up-and-coming bantamweight Sterling.

Fighters we missed

2. Nate Diaz

Diaz’s first fight in 2015 was on the last UFC fight card of the year. It was his first fight with the promotion since he put in a lackluster performance against dos Anjos in December 2014. Diaz was up to his usual antics in his most recent fight against Michael Johnson. He taunted his opponent, postured, posed, talked trash, and actually open hand slapped Johnson during the three-round fight.

Diaz won the fight easily and took home a “Fight of the Night” bonus for his efforts, but he really showed us why we miss having him around when he took the microphone for his post-fight interview and gave the FOX production team fits, tearing into UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor with a, shall we say, colorful interview.

1. Khabib Nurmagomedov

Khabib Nurmagomedov has not fought since he defeated current UFC lightweight champion dos Anjos in April 2014. Injuries have kept the 22-0 fighter from the Octagon since then, yet he remains ranked No. 2 in the division, behind only former champion Pettis. Nurmagomedov is still young, 27 years old, so there is hope that he will put his injuries behind him and get back in the cage to fight again. If the past is any indicator, that fight will be spectacular.

Nick Diaz vs Anderson Silva UFC 183 FULL FIGHT Champions

Leaning her forward and providing a luxurious view of the incredibly trained and elastic buttocks, my hand began to pull the white barrier from the pussy. As a result, in front of me stood a gorgeous young woman with long athletic legs dressed in patterned stockings, a dress pulled up on her back and an. Alluring vagina hole right in front of me. Her chest rested against the back of the bench, and her gold-decorated hands also held onto it.

Now discussing:

Door. Oleg and Vitya came with their wives, they were already family men. Still - we are already 23 years old, and Natasha and Rita are 20 years old. After noisy hugs, kisses and greetings, we sat at such an excellent table - the girls prepared the same and brought with them. It was a wonderful evening of the New Year's meeting.
