To many people, Nick Diaz remains a mystery, a riddle and an enigma: someone who is handed great opportunities and nearly squanders them; someone who fights in a sport seen by millions, but shuns media attention, and someone who can issue a compliment and an insult in the same breath, at the same person. And that is exactly why Diaz appeals to people — he’s real, he’s human, like all of us. He reminds us that no one is perfect. But in the eyes of many, he is the anti-hero and GSP is the squeaky-clean, pure-as-driven-snow white knight.
