Nick Diaz (pictured) takes pride in being one of the UFC’s hardest fighters, but the welterweight/middleweight showed his softer side Monday after news broke legendary comedian and actor Robin Williams had committed suicide.

Williams touched the lives of many with his countless box office hits, and he clearly moved Diaz with his 1991 movie “Hook.”

Just trying to picture Diaz and his younger brother, Nate, watching the film together while growing up on the mean streets of the 209 is giving me #HappyThoughts.

Props to Diaz for holding on to his VHS copy of the movie for all these years.

Diaz ends his premature retirement for the second time to meet Anderson Silva on January 31 at UFC 183.
