Where is Din Thomas? Outback!

Assuming he can get pen to paper in the next 30 days.

Former UFC lightweight Din Thomas is in verbal agreement to challenge Bernardo Magalhaes this September under the Cage Fighting Championship (CFC) banner in Sydney, Australia.

The bout, according to TCPalm.com, is expected to be for "Trekko's" welterweight title.

"I've verbally committed to the organization and they've verbally committed, but they haven't sent over the paperwork yet," said Thomas. "It would be an immediate title shot with the champ. It all depends on if he accepts. I'd like to find out sooner than later because I would like to put a training camp together. I'm training anyway, but I need to get training camp for the fight."

Thomas was a top contender in the UFC's stacked 155-pound division prior to suffering back-to-back losses to Kenny Florian and Josh Neer. Following his consecutive goose eggs, "Dinyero" announced his desire to compete at 145-pounds.

He never got the chance.

Thomas was given his Zuffa pink slip in May 2008 along with Travis Lutter, David Heath, Kalib Starnes, Joe Doerksen and John Halverson. Since then, he scored a submission win (triangle choke) over Dustin Pierkin at Headhunter Productions "The Patriot Act" back in February 2009 followed by a TKO victory (knee) over Gabe Lemley at "March Badness" just over a month later.


Affliction MMA quickly scooped him up for their August 2009 "Trilogy" event, but we all know how that turned out.

The 34-year-old Florida native was back in the headlines after accepting a Shine Fights main event opposite Boxing's Ricardo Mayorga, but the promotion was unable to secure the funds necessary to stage the pay-per-view (PPV) event and left the fans (and fighters) high and dry.

Thomas hasn't competed since stopping Dustin Pague (technical knockout) at WEF: "Brasco vs. Whitesel" in January 2010.

Anyone think the 13-year veteran can salvage the remainder of his mixed martial arts career?
