One such bettor (to hear him tell it) ended up having to sleep in his car because he placed his rent money on Diaz. And when this was brought to the fighter's attention on Instagram, he actually offered to pay the man's lost rent.
Now that's what you like to see out of athletes. Even though it's a rough situation, there's nothing quite as cool as watching the guys fans look up to reach out to help when assistance is needed most.
If anything, it's also a sign of humility on Diaz's part. He's basically apologizing for losing the fight by for the fan that he failed to produce for.
Who knows, maybe he'll pull some motivation from this situation? After all, he hasn't lost back-to-back fights in over a decade. He and this dedicated fan could end up benefiting from this in the long run, especially if the guy bets on him in his next fight.
Regardless of what the future holds for both of these men, this is truly a heartwarming act of kindness in a world sorely lacking for such things.
