Robbie Lawler took the wind out of the sails around Nick Diaz’s anticipated return when he came out victorious in their UFC 266 rematch.

Lawler (29-15 MMA, 14-9 UFC) not only derailed Diaz’s (26-10 MMA, 7-7 UFC) heavily hyped comeback fight with third-round TKO win, but he got revenge of his 2004 loss in the first meeting between the two.

Moreover, the former UFC champ snapped his four-fight losing skid in the welterweight bout at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Lawler’s victory over Diaz at UFC 266.
