Yes you are correct that is my assumption even without the threat of violence people are intimidated however should said person be a dick to a fighters face knowing that he can't insult you or hurt badly back because you are a fan and he a fighter than you are a dick.
Oh, see, there's where we differ, I completely agree that a fan who does that is a complete dick. My point was simply that saying a simple fact like "hey, Nick Diaz, the way you're acting comes off as if you're scared of GSP." A statement like that, drawn from my own perspective on his actions, hell yeah I'd say it to his face. But I wouldn't outwardly call him out just to call him out. That's just disrespectful.
