Nick Diaz was offered a rematch with Robbie Lawler, but he turned it down according to Joe Rogan.
Rogan commented on the former Strikeforce welterweight champion on his recent podcast. Diaz has just recently been allowed to return to competition after his suspension by the NSAC. He was suspended for having marijuana metabolites in his system – that means he was possibly high out of his mind during his fight with Anderson Silva. It was his third offense and despite the fact that the result from the more reputable lab came back clean, he was suspended. The NSAC, headed by Pat Lundval at the time, was out for blood and Diaz was a prime target.
