Raise your hand if you’ve ran an unsanctioned underground fight club entirely in your gym in Palm Springs, Florida. If your name isn’t Din Thomas then you should slap yourself in the face and give me everything in your kitchen (including that six-pack you bought for this weekend). Din Thomas is the friggin man. I know that expression is used more than ‘Machida is elusive’, but it’s true. Din Thomas is the friggin man. Who else has a DVD where they teach you 1,001 submissions in a 52 volume set. I bet you didn’t even know the human body was capable of 1,001 submissions (it’s cool, I didn’t either). When Chris Brown was accused of assaulting Rhianna last year, Din Thomas got on the mic after his win over Gabe Lemey and called out Chris Brown. Dude announced in front of an audience of drunk fans that it was wrong to beat chicks and that if Rhianna ever needed his assistance, he would readily be available. See, I told you Din Thomas is truly the friggin man. You would think Din Thomas would essentially own Ricardo Mayorga in the trash talking department…but you’re wrong. We’re all wrong.
Today, the Shine Fights press conference went down in New York City and featured perhaps the best trash talking MMA has ever witnessed and just in case words weren’t enough, Ricardo Mayorga topped off the event by karate chopping Din Thomas which subsequently makes it the most ballerish way to end a press conference, ever.
