They sit on the internet and bash in the form of youtube comments and online forum posts, but when push comes to shove, they won't do a damn thing.
The closest thing on video to a fan trash talking Diaz came from a fan at the weigh ins of the Nate/Diaz - Jim Miller fight. Some moron is at the crowd in the weigh ins recording the entire thing and he starts shouting out to Nate and Nick insulting them from the crowd. Nick catches on, hears the moron talking trash, gives him the evil eye and approaches the fan whilst he was walking back stage. Can you guess what happened next? Soon as Nick made eye contact, he went as quiet as a church mouse and shut the **** up, just like every other god damn internet warrior would do in the exact same situation
I think it's hilarious you think Diaz has a legion of haters that insult him on a daily basis in real life to his face.
Diaz has missed press conferences and media obligations in the past also, not just for the GSP fights. Do some damn research.
Diaz punking out a fan doesn't mean he would have done anything but shit talk back in an attempt to try and rile up the crowd even more.
I don't know how you think Diaz a guy who embraces the heel role doesn't have people mouth off at him considering guys like Forrest Griffen and Chuck Liddell have discussed having to deal with it and considering people used to do it to a prime Mike Tyson. Pretty much all high profile fighters are gonna run into some fan shit talking them at some point no matter how popular they are.
