The entire stream went on as usual, with the group solely focused on the scavenger hunt across Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Nick seemed to casually stroll past the group with few people in his tow. The legendary fighter recently made his return to the Octagon after nearly being away for 7 years.

Nick Diaz had a rough outing at UFC 266

The 38-year-old fighter was unfairly banned from competition by the athletic commission 7 years ago. This led to Nick’s career getting derailed and the former title challenger lost all motivation to continue. However, everything changed at UFC 266, when the Diaz army’s leader decided to once again step back into the ring against a familiar foe in ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler.

The two captivating icons of the sport put on a fantastic show that fans won’t forget anytime soon. In this highly anticipated rematch, Robbie managed to exact revenge after nearly 17 years. In his last bout against Nick, Robbie suffered a brutal knockout loss in the third round of the fight. However, in the rematch, the fight didn’t go past the third round. And this time it was Nick Diaz who lost.

Nick did not seem to be his usual self and the fight being moved to middleweight in the fight week was a big red flag. Famous for his unyielding attitude and strict military-like training regime, Diaz seemed in horrible shape. It is safe to say ring rust played a big role in the fight, as Robbie has been very active in the past 7 years, and in this duration, he also held the Welterweight title.
