Go K-Flo. I'd love to see Florian make it back to the top of the division again.

If Florian can pull out a win against Dinyero than he truly belongs in the top five of the lightweight rankings and a title shot. I don't think he can pull this off though. Thomas is a big lightweight and will most likley out muscle Florian for the submission of the night honour.

I really dont enjoy kenny's fights but at least this fight has a purpose and can get him up the ladder quicker. Good switch.

This is very good and even matchup i cant decided who im going to pick they are both very good on their feet and on the ground, i would give Din a bit of an advantage on the feet and in the wrestling departement and id give Kenny a bit of an advantage on the ground, both have shown alot of improvment in their games lately and have turned themselves from tufers to top contenders in the stacked lightweight division. AS far as the style matchups in this fight they both fight with a similar style which is a ver y aggresive one where both look to finish fights both standing and on the ground. So overall this is a very hard fight to pick a winner but im leaning a little bit towards Din just because he does have more experience and fight experience but this fight culd go either way.

KFLO round 2 submission.

Din Thomas is a bjj master, if Kenflo wins it will be by tko or descision.Personally i thought Din vs. Spencer would have been a
much more interesting fight, another option could have been B.J. Penn vs.Din
which would have been a hyped rematch that would make alot of money...
......plus Kenny just fought at UFC73.

But since the UFC put Kenny to fight Din i'm going to have to go with Kenny
by TKO

???... IDK what this means. I never woulda put him at the top, but for those that think he was-- then he still is. He was given one title shot, w/o showing he deserved it, and now that sherk may not defend the belt he's been thrown around as getting another. If he beats Thomas it'll be the biggest win of his career, and finally put him near the top.

I just meant that I'd like to see him get a title shot again if he earns it. Contrary to what some may think, the UFC put him up against Sherk for a reason, be it to feed him to Sherk or because the UFC thought he was good enough. Regardless, it was a great fight and I personally feel that Ken-Flo can handle Din.

You may feel free to disagree but I think Din is over-hyped, but whatever, he could barely handle his last fight.

Din is far from overhyped if anything i would say he is underhyped, he did go threw a though period in his career where he had some bad losses and faded into obscurity but after his ufc career was revived via tuf 4 he has looked very impressive beating Clkementi who is a very tough fighter that Din made look like an amature, Guida where DIn won a pretty clear cut decision which is a very tough thing to do against Clay and Dominated Jeremy Stephens ( i dont know how you could think he barely handled him) and pulled off one of the nicest subbmisions of teh year. So i do disagree with you.

That being said the fight with Ken-Flo could go either way and im having a very tough time decided who to pick.
