    It’s about time, this shit was taking foreeeeeeever.

    What are your expectations on a scale of 1 to 10? 10 being he looks outstanding and you expect him to push for a title shortly, and 1 being “why did we want to see him fight again?”

    Honestly I'm not expecting much. I think nick battles anxiety really bad and this is probably a really rough week for him after a layoff that long. A layoff where many times in his head I'd assume he thought he was done.

    I'll be impressed if he comes out and gives it his all win or lose.

    Both guys gas in the first round and it ends up an uneventful draw

    I'm expecting him to get starched, he hasn't fought in almost 7 years and it's not like he's been taking care of himself and training consistently since then. Lawler is shot but he's still been active at least.

    I hope I'm wrong because I like the guy, but I just don't see it.

    If he’s going to be in contention he should finish Lawler. Anything else and he’s passed his best. He’s not any younger and although he never had an explosive/speed based fighting style, his age will probably affect his cardio. I hope he puts in a good display. Maybe if he looks okay and gets a win they’ll try and book him v Masvidal

    I'm setting my expectations very low but hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

    While I understand the nostalgia and excitement for this fight, I think it’s going to be a big letdown and anti-climactic.

    I doubt either fighter will come out looking like a killer or how we remember them from the past.

    i’m still excited to see it though.

    Loverboy Nick shows up and turns lots of young girls who are tuning into fans.

    I think he doesn’t do it if he would be embarrassed. Probably not so keen on the ground now but I expect him to still push too hard of a pace for Lawler

    Anticipating a slow fight. Diaz does his taunting and such which is entertaining but there’s little in the way of action and ends in a tight decision.

    I think Lawler will come in tremendous shape (the shape he was in the Askren fight) and mop the floor with Nick. I think Lawler is ultra motivated for this one and he had time to rest.

    He will tap to strikes and bring shame to the 209
