Former UFC Lightweight Thomas has inked a new three-fight deal with Affliction and will drop to Featherweight as well. A date and opponent for his debut is currently unknown. Thomas had a 5-4 overall mark in UFC.

Good for Din I think he was a mid level gat keeper IMO which was a shame cause I always saw alot of potential in him he'll probally tear it up in Affliction.

All the best to Din, hope he makes a big splash in the Featherweight division. Anyone know possible match ups for Din for his debut? What quality 145'ers are outside the WEC that aren't already spoken for due to injury, suspension, or other extenuating circumstances that would prevent competition?

I wish he was fighting at 145 in WEC.

Din can fight Chris Horodecki(sp)

It would've been sick to see him in the WEC

Good to see my fellow writers at 411mania.com getting some love. More things from the site should be discussed and linked here.

I'm liking the idea of Din fighting at featherweight. I've always liked him hopefully he has some success.
