Thomas, a former UFC Veteran, who owns an American Top Team facility in Port St. Lucie Florida and has served as a Fight Time Promotions' TV commentator agreed to get back in the cage after a 2-year layoff.
The show - Fight Time 7 - was named after Din Thomas for making his return. He was supposed to fight George Sheppard and was the main event for this much anticipated fight night.
Din had made weight the night before and was ready for battle. However, when Thomas got behind the wheel of his car on Friday, October 7th, 2011 everything changed. He didn't make it to the War Memorial Auditorium in Ft. Lauderdale, FL after getting into a car accident.
Many of his fans were left wondering what happened that night. Now, Din tells his story to his good friend, former trainer and now his promoter - Howard Davis Jr.
We hope to see Din back in the cage very soon!
