Diaz's tweet included a video of the late Tupac Shakur saying: "What I want people to know is don't support the phonies, support the real."

The Stockton slugger's legion of followers were quick to comment, with one saying: "Nate Diaz knows what's up."

Another said: "Real recognize real."

"It's typical of him. That's what he likes to do. He's a street gangster. He likes to act tough and he's really not. Why are you trying to beat someone up in the hallway?"
