Nick Diaz will make his long-awaited return to the octagon this Saturday at UFC 266 in Las Vegas when he takes on Robbie Lawler for the second time.

During a recent pre-fight interview with Brett Okamoto of ESPN, Diaz discussed how much he dislikes fighting now, and his honesty seemed refreshing for someone who has been doing this as long as he has.

It has been six years since Diaz last stepped inside the octagon. His last fight, which was overturned to a no-contest, was against MMA legend Anderson Silva. Diaz recently sat down to discuss how he really hasn’t missed fighting in his six-year absence and that he actually hates fighting.

Hearing a fighter speak of the toll fighting has on them is refreshing and one of the many reasons the Diaz brothers are fan favorites.

Diaz may hate fighting, but that doesn’t mean he won’t step into the octagon Saturday night ready for war. Lawler and Diaz first met at UFC 47 in April of 2004. Diaz won the contest by KO in the second round. Lawler is currently on a four-fight losing streak starving for a win.

It’s uncertain if fans will see either one of these legends in the cage again after Saturday night. If it ends up being the last time, expect nothing but fireworks between these legendary warriors at T-Mobile Arena.
