UFC 266: Volkanovski vs. Ortega fight card

Check out the fight card and bout order for UFC 266.

It’s UFC 266 fight week!

September 25th will see two title fights atop the card, but really the main event for many people is the return of Nick Diaz against Robbie Lawler. Diaz hasn’t fought since 2015 and this Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas he makes his comeback at long last against the former UFC welterweight champion. These two fought in 2004 with Diaz handing Lawler his first ever knockout loss. The rematch will be scheduled for five rounds.

Oh yeah, as for the actual title fights you have the men’s featherweight title at stake between champion Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega, while women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko battles Lauren Murphy, who will look to pull off the shocker of all shockers in the night’s co-main.
