Nate Diaz isn't buying Josh Thomson's hacked-phone allegations

First, Thomson tweeted the following to the Diaz brothers, Nick and Nate, slamming them both in the process:  

I knocked out your brother, I’ll knock ur b—- a– out in San Jose July 26th.Let’s do it B—-, San Jose vs Stockon. Yup, F— U NICK DIAZ!

While that tweet has since been deleted by Thomson, word of The Punk's call-out had already made its rounds, and the younger Diaz, Nate, took note.  

Despite a few apologies from Thomson after the fact, Nate's dormant vitriol stirred awake, and the Stockton bad boy tweeted the following in response: 

Them's fighting words. 

Of course, Thomson and Diaz already fought, with Thomson earning a second-round knockout via head kick at UFC on Fox 7 in April 2013. 

Still, the beef is juicy, and any time Nate Diaz speaks on social media, hilarity ensues. The man does not go out of his way to avoid a scrap—verbal or otherwise—and his fight-first, think-later attitude makes for Twitter gold. 

In this case, it's unlikely that Diaz would receive a rematch with Thomson, but in an age of ever-increasing "hacked" phones, the 209 product does raise an interesting point. 

Thomson may be backpedalling on his words after a night of irresponsible decisions, or he may have legitimately suffered from an act of thievery. 

Regardless, The Punk appears legitimately apologetic for his harsh words, and it looks like a fight with either Diaz is out of the picture for now. 

Unless, of course, Thomson sees either Diaz brother in a back alley somewhere. If this latest Twitter jab is any indication, the Stockton slap is cocked and ready for action.
