UFC 266 Tweets: Fighters react to Robbie Lawler’s win over Nick Diaz

There were glimpses of the old Nick Diaz at UFC 266, and many clear looks of the current Nick Diaz as he returned after a six-year layoff to rematch Robbie Lawler.

Here’s what fighters had to say about Robbie Lawler vs. Nick Diaz 2 at UFC 266.
