I think Neer has a very possible chance of beating Din Thomas, does anyone agree?

I'm pretty sure Neers height will take away Thomas' boxing specific striking and I don't see Neer being submitted anytime soon.

I still picked Thomas but Im on the fence.

underrated according to what? the thousands of half wits on the playground with 50% win percentages

Neer is being underated, but it's based on how many people pick you to win right? The odds come from us not the administration, at least thats how I understood it. Josh will be able to hang with Din, but I am betting on Din to finish....he has looked soo good lately, he was going to beat Florian I think. To bad he got hurt...I really don't like Din's personality, but his fighting is great!!

and you're 9-1 WOW what do you do, guess only on matches you know you can win?

"Well I guessed on 3 events but I really didn't want to lose so I only picked sure shots! I only have picked 10 fights in my life but I'm at 90 %!!!"

dude calm the disrespect before the karma boomerage hits you in the pompous ass. Yeah, look it up, half wit.

I think Neer is getting WAY too much credit.

IMO he is going to get destroyed, not even a competitive match.

Owned!

I think he's a little underrated here, but like somebody alluded to, you can't really go by the number of Playground members picking one over the other.

He's been away from the UFC for a while...so that tells me a little something. He did well while he was away, but I think Din knows he has to keep showing what he's capable of and will walk through Neer.

LOL at you being pwned and finding it funny, point being you cant call others halfwits when they have picked on hard event for a long time as opposed to you who did well in 1 just 1 event

The thread starter is correct and the line should be closer, dunno why people like pookie think Neer is some can who will get destroyed, he is making his 155 debut so he will be big, and he beat Stevenson not long ago, Din is past his best imo

^^^ AGREED! The only people that are sleeping on Neer are the ATT nutthuggers that dont believe they will ever lose.

Neer by KO\TKO second round. He will be too big and too strong for Din.

In terms of talent Din is top 15 in the LW division.

I think it will look a lot like Rich Clementi vs Din Thomas. Din will destroy him on the feet and even though Rich is great with submissions, Din was able to beat him up, stun him, and get his back and choke him out.

Din will beat him up badly in the 1st, make him go into a bad spot in the 2nd and submit him

I have to go with Thomas finishing him on the feet but Neer is a little underrated by a lot of people but everytime he has stepped up in his competition (example Nick Diaz) he got dominated quite easily. Din's ground game is quite good too so I don't really see where Neer takes the fight where he has an advantage but I expect a pretty good fight from both.
