Nick Diaz has had a hell of a year so far. The former Strikeforce Welterweight champion lost the biggest fight of his career, got popped (and suspended) for failing a drug test, and no-showed a BJJ "super fight."
But don't expect to see a swarm of fans migrating off the Diaz bandwagon. The Stockton-based fighter is one of many that have truly die-hard fans that never waver in their support.
Through thick and thin, these guys can always count on having fans rush to the keyboards to defend their honour.
