Josh Neer VS Din "Dinyero" Thomas is coming up pretty soon, and i find myself having difficulty going with a solid pick... Im thinking Thomas by TKO but i find myself wanting to go Neer by submission.. Right now im sitting on Thomas but what do you guys think?

It just seems like din has more ways to win the fight, but ever since Neer opened up Gallard and then got him in a triangle, i just feel like he could possibly pull it off.

My thoughts immediately went to Din but I as well am conflicted. I mean the dentist is one hard SOB and will give Dinyero a run for his money (pardon the pun) but I just see Din having too much at his disposal to lose this one.

Props to the UFC for bringing Neer back.

If I had to pick now I'd go Din Thomas by Unanimous Desicision.

thomas is an easy choice for me in this one, especially after seeing neer in the ifl, that was the last time ive seen him and he didnt look good at all.

I was hoping someone had seen him more recently, that makes me feel better about my pick for Thomas, though ya never know.. Neer could still pull off an upset in my opinion if he trains right... Still im going with Thomas by TKO i think.

Its hard not to root for Neer. He has alot of heart. He didn't look good in the IFL match I saw him in...but who knows if he was injured or not in shape and just got caught. I look forward to seeing this fight. You could make a case for either guy winning, but I'll be rooting for Neer.

dont think either guy will get a KO, it probably ends in a submission or decision, has the makings for FOTN, like both guys alot and glad to see din and josh back too bad one has to lose, id rather see din stomp on kenny with a healthy knee

Not a chance in all hell Neer can Submit ATT black belt under ricardo liborio DIN Thomas. Din should be able to TKO or armbar him!

No chance in hell Neer will get the submission, I was thinking more along the lines of a hard fought unany for Neer. Neer is a tough as guy, with legit skills, I'd really like to see him get tested more. The UFC just lets him sit as a gate keeper, he beats guys, and never moves up the ladder really.

if you read carefully youll see i didnt write that neer would end it in a submission, i said "it will probably end in a submission or decision"

selective reading is so annoying

I think Thomas will win by dec. He's got slick boxing and has a better submission arsenal also. This fight is at LW right?

I think Thomas might end this. He completely outclasses Neer.
