Finally healed from a knee injury he suffered in a September main-event fight, Din Thomas (20-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC) will likely return to the octagon to take on Josh Neer (23-6-1 MMA, 2-3 UFC) at a UFC Fight Night 13 event planned for April 2.

This is a good match up i am going for Josh on this one. He has the no quit attitude. This is going to be an awesome fight I like both. But Neer is going to pull it off.

I guess Josh Neer is dropping down to Lightweight for this fight. He's going to be a powerful lightweight but I think Din has more skill and experience so Im going with Din by submission in the second round on this one.

I think Neer will proove to be to strong for Din, but Din can still Sub him at any point in the fight so this would be a tough one to call

Good to see Neer fighting again. He hasn't fought in the UFC for quite a while so he should put on a good fight for his comeback. I'm picking him in this one, but I'm not yet sure how I think he'll win.

Is Neer going down to 155 or Thomas to 170?Neer seems way too big to drop to 155 imo.I'm just thinking about how much bigger he was than Joe Stevenson when they fought at 170.

THey better make this fight night a 3 hour event like they do TUF finales, because they have about 6 fights that could headline this event...Florian/lauzon, Parysian/Alves, Bonner/Hammill, Guida/Shavio, Fisher/Auerilo, and now Neer/THomas...

ANy of those could Headline a fight night, and I'm gonna be pissed if they don't air one of them, so they BETTER make it a 3 hour fight night

din is extremely underrated, i would love to see him fight kenny again because i think if he didn't hurt his knee that would have been a great fight. not saying he would have won but it would have been a close contended fight. with that said i think din submits neer in the second. neer is tough as nails but thomas is so slick and talented.

wow Neer can make 155? I would expect him to win a tough scrap then, Din just seems good in evera area but not great in any, Neer is similar but fights harder imo

I doubt he could "pap pap pap" him like Diaz did and i just seeing Neer winning a close decision, oddly wont make the main card good fight tho, i like

I was wondering where Josh Neer had been hiding. He should have his way with Din. He has better standup, all around toughness, and good enough submissions not to get caught by Thomas. Neer will get him against the fence, do some work there, then separate and KO Din. Too tough of a comeback fight if you ask me.
