Phone Thief Hijacks Josh Thomson’s Twitter and Calls Out Nick Diaz

It’s deja vu in the MMA world as Josh Thomson claims that his phone was stolen after his twitter issued an inflammatory call-out of Nick Diaz early this morning.

Stern words, sterner than Thomson is usually known for (unless he’s talking about gay marriage). July 26th, in case you forgot, is the date of UFC on FOX 12, located in Thomson’s hometown of San Jose.

Thomson sent out a series of tweets several hours later, claiming that his phone was stolen and that he’d never tweet such sordid things:

What’s the CagePotato verdict? Meh. The tweet, while crass, was ultimately benign. It’s not like he was pulling a Jon Jones. Furthermore, Thomson’s reaction to it was swift and consistent. Unlike Jones, he didn’t give a dozen different excuses ranging from a rogue PR firm to a hacked phone. Was Thomson telling the truth though? That’s a little harder to tell. It’s pretty miraculous that the thief was an MMA fan knowledgeable enough not only to know Nick Diaz was from Stockton, but that UFC on FOX 12 took place on the 26th and in San Jose. Maybe Thomson called out Diaz in an alcohol induced haze? The tweet was written at about 4 am, after all. MMA historian and Bleacher Report lead writer Jonathan Snowden put it a little more succinctly:

We’ll add any updates as they come. Until then, we’ll be working on a database of all the times phones were hacked and stolen in MMA.
