We have UFC 265 to look forward to this weekend, but on September 25th there’s a bigger pay-per-view in store at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. In the main event, men’s featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski defends his title against Brian Ortega. The other title fight pits women’s flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko versus first-time title challenger Lauren Murphy.

I’m sure many will be looking forward to the return of Nick Diaz, as the former Strikeforce champ is set to rematch Robbie Lawler a whopping 17 years from their first fight. Diaz won by KO back in 2004, and this will be his first fight since his no-contest with Anderson Silva in 2015.
