I was wondering as to why he was cut. He did have back-to-back losses but one was from injury and before that, he was considered a top Lightweight contender.

So my question is why was he cut and do you think he should have been?

He got cut because he's either going to drop down or retire. I would give him a great shot against anybody at 145, Even Uriah Freakin' Faber. He's so well rounded he has a great chance against anybody. A fight with Jeff Curran would be a dream fight of mine!

Ill just post what i posted in the news thing to save time. I would be pissed if he'd been cut by zuffa all together and hes not moving to the wec though.



Wow, im shocked they dropped Din! he always brings a good fight, the only time he hasnt looked good are when he lost to florian after the injury, and his last fight, but alot of the fighters gassed on that card due to the altitude so i dont blame him for not being at his best, and even then it was still a competitive fight.

I heard a rumor he wanted to drop down to 145, so im hoping the ufc have just moved him to the wec so he can fight in the 145 division there. Din vs Faber would be intense!

About two weeks ago, on this very website someone posted the story that Din wants to move to 145lbs. It's not a big suprise since the UFC doesn't have a 145lbs division. We will more than likely move to the WEC and fight there. I would be suprised to see him fight overseas or for a company not owned by Zuffa.

Din Thomas was cut because he got beat. Again and again. And again.

On a side note, Cage Rage should set up a Ross Pointon/Din Thomas fight. Who among us wouldn't pay our weight in Indian rupees to see that? (No, not roofies).

I should start the 85,678,940th topic on this site about dream MMA matchups and have that one as no. 1.

What I dont understand is if they were going to transfer him to the WEC, why cut him? why not change the contract? I have a feeling he won't be back under Zuffa, at least not right away.

If he can string some W's outside the UFC, maybe he will come back!

Out of the three that were cut I belive Din was cheated out the most , they better give him a contract with the wec or that would be a waste of good talent
