Josh Thomson Twitter account drops f-bomb on Nick Diaz, but 'Punk' insists his phone was stolen

USA TODAY Sports

Stop, thief!

When in doubt, look to "Rampage."

Bellator superstar Quinton Jackson has his own signature iPhone case (pic). Not only does it come in camouflage -- keeping it hidden from would-be phone-nappers -- but it also has a chain that attaches to your hip, kind of like those leather wallets the burnouts used to wear in high school.

Josh Thomson should make the investment.

That would keep him from losing his phone, or even worse, having it stolen during a night on the town. That's apparently what happened over the weekend when Thomson's Twitter account tweeted out the following gem:

"I knocked out your brother, I'll knock ur bitch ass out in San Jose July 26th.Let's do it Bitch, San Jose vs Stockon. Yup, FUCK U NICK DIAZ!"

Thomson has been known to send out controversial tweets (like this one).

But "The Punk" insists he was not the person responsible for the social media misstep, and has since used the same outlet to apologize for the tweet and explain his side of the story.

"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."

Sound familiar?

It should. UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones found himself in hot water last month when a homophobic slur found its way onto Instagram under Jones' account. "Bones" also cried theft and fired the employee charged with keeping track of his social media accounts.

Diaz, not surprisingly, has not responded.
