    HOW
    WHY
    HOW AND WHY

    The same Robbie Lawler who is on a 4 fight losing streak at WW and just got outclassed by journeyman Neil Magny. Robbie is on a significant downturn and took a lot of damage

    Compared to a now motivated Nick Diaz who is has best resting and recovering over 5 years and last fought moving up in weight and going to a decision with MW great Anderson Silva

    Plus Nick doesnt have to worry about getting caught for smoking weed or CBD

    Maybe they are using the long layoff as part of their equation. I think Nick takes it though.

    He should be because he has been more active win or lose.

    Yeah watching Robbie fight recently I don't think he should be a favorite over anyone. He isn't even throwing punches in his lands few fights

    B/c we have no idea how motivated Nick will be. We have no idea what shape he will show up in. We have no idea what he's been doing for the extended time he's been away. Too many unknowns with Nick.

    Diaz hasn’t won a fight in 10 years.

    Also in his 6 years off he has been getting wasted regularly

    Nick has been frying his brain drinking and partying on the daily as a PR person for local clubs for the best part of the last 5 years. I don't think he looks good in his comeback.

    And I say that as a fan.

    Diaz literally hasn't won a fight in 10 years and he's spent the last 6 drinking and partying. Lawler has declined but he's still fighting and it's not like he's getting starched

    Nick is gonna stand there with Robbie bobbing and weaving around him for 3 rounds. Lawler will win the decision, Nick will complain at the presser and demand a trilogy.

    Yeah lol, not sure why anyone can argue the odds. Nick...aside from what you stated also appeared to be in a bad place mentally and physically for a few years prior to getting back into the gym..so even as a long time fan of Nick...I am very skeptical of the form he comes to fight with.

    I have to admit, I haven't seen any recent interview. But based on the ones we saw around the time of Nate vs Jorge, Nick's liver might beg to differ.

    What fucking bookie are you using TS? I see Robbie at -125. That's pretty far away from -200

    On top of the obvious,

    Hasn't Nick been struggling with alcohol or been a crackhead in this span or something? I recall hearing some crazy shit. Didn't he go nutty and beat his gf? Something like that.
