Noah Thomas (13-4), a cast member from the fifth season of "The Ultimate Fighter," has replaced an injured Eddie Wineland (14-6-1) at next month's WEC 41 event.

Thomas will drop to 135 pounds to fight Frank Gomez (6-1) in a preliminary card bout.

WEC GM Reed Harris today announced via Twitter.com that Thomas had signed with the organization, and WEC PR Manager Dave Sholler confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he'll take Wineland's spot on the WEC 41 card.

Let's hope he has a better showing than he did against Marlon Sims.

No, he tried to triangle choke/armbar/whatever Marlon and consequently got powerbombed on to smooth stones.
