It is now just a matter of weeks until Nick Diaz’s exile from the cage is set to end. 

The elder Diaz brother hasn’t competed in the UFC since a 2015 no-contest against Anderson Silva but will renew a particularly old rivalry on September 25 when he rematches former welterweight champion Robbie Lawer some 17 years after they first met as young, up and coming fighters.

On that occasion it was Diaz who would win the fight by second round knockout in a fight which is still lauded by MMA purists. Will the second helping have quite the same drama? We can only hope, but the below promo will certainly do a pretty good job of hyping you up.
