The point.......is that Nick has nothing to prove. He beat him already. The rematch would be different, but Nick would have the psychological edge (because he knows that he beat him once, even if it was 10 years ago)...
Plus, Nick has improved as well...Of course Lawler would be the favorite, because he's on a tear....but that would just set up an eerie deja vu (since Lawler was favored last time as well)..
Lawler and Diaz's style would make for an amazing fight. Have you guys seen Lawler's last few fights? Dude loves to stand and bang... & that plays to Nick's strengths. Now, maybe Lawler can out duel him....but that has yet to be seen. Either way, it would be an amazing fight and I think its foolish to think that Nick could not be competitive/win the rematch (no matter how much momentum Lawler currently has).
