The Punk calls out 'b---- a$$' Nick Diaz, or did he? Nate not impressed

 

UFC on Fox 12 takes place at the SAP Center in San Jose, CA on July 26. San Jose native Josh "The Punk" Thomson knows who he wants to fight.

So he asked his manager to make subtle feelers towards the potential opponent's management, in hopes of coming to amicable terms.

NO HE DIDN'T - he took to Twitter and started cursing.

Josh Thomson @THEREALPUNK
I knocked out your brother, I'll knock ur b---- ass out in San Jose July 26th. Let's do it B----, San Jose vs Stockon. Yup, F--- U Nick Diaz!

Thomson, 35, is coming off a win over Nate Diaz via headick KO and a split decision loss to Benson Henderson. Following the loss, the former Strikeforce lightweight champion had talked about retiring.

Nick Diaz's last fight was a loss via unanimous decision to then UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, back in March of 2013. Diaz has been in a state of semi retirement since, saying it would take 500k or a title shot get get him back.

Here's the thing, if you only know one thing about mixed martial arts, know that Nick Diaz ain't no bitch.

However, getting cursed on Twitter is likely not quite the same as 500,000 dollars, and Diaz didn't respond, as he was enjoying the Mayweather fight in Las Vegas. Further muddying the waters, Thomson later took it back.

Josh Thomson @THEREALPUNK
•People that know me, know I wouldn't ever talk about a fighter like this. My phone was stolen last night while at dinner.
•I respect every fighter and especially the Diaz brothers. @NateDiaz209 an @nickdiaz209 always been cool guys to me and nothing bad to say
•My apologies to anyone who was offended by the tweets and texts.

So UG, what is going here?

Following the theft of Jon Jones' phone and subsequent heckling of a heckler, is this the beginning of a new trend in MMA social networking??!?

Khabib Nurmagomedov had something to say.

"My phone wasn't stolen last night while at dinner, and I'm challenge one of DiazBrothers!" he tweeted. "Anytime Anyplace Anyweight! it's not problem."

And eventually Nate Diaz had a lot to say.

 Nathan Diaz @NateDiaz209
•You got drunk talked a bunch of stupid shit when you woke up you panicked an #backpeddled #sorryasslittlebitch #whatreallyhappened #bereal
•I forget thompson's twitter name...just type it not hard to find...he may have taken down the tweet but ug caught it.

When a Diaz brother tells you to be real, you should listen, as they are experts.

And eventually Thomson responded one last time.

Josh Thomson @THEREALPUNK
I apologized out of respect for you and brother, if it's not appreciated, honestly, I don't give crap what you believe.

Wasn't a troll, I just found it funny that he specifically said "any time" while one of the headlines on the front page of this website read "Khabib Namanamanamanav declines fight during Ramadan." So "any time" clearly doesn't ring true.

Because up until that head kick, it was an evenly matched fight.

Why? Why are you confident in this? The evidence indicates the exact opposite.

I'm confident Nate would win if they fought again.

Either way, where's Nick? Letting his little brother ( who Thompson destroyed) talk shit for him.Either put the fucking gloves on, or I'm tired of hearing about Nick Diaz. He's supposed to be a fighter. He needs to stop acting like he's the champion of something . He got a title shot and didn't perform well. He needs to beat a top ten fighter or two and build himself back into a contender. Other than that, he's selling wolf tickets.

Also, Khabib: I challenge either Diaz to a fight, any time any place. . . Except Ramadan. . .

Sorry to be blunt but you are an idiot. Smart phones contain too much sensitive information. Depending on your level of use a thief may be able to find your address, credit card information and may even be able to make purchases directly from apps on your phone.
