Din Thomas, who was submitted by Kenny Florian in the main event of UFC Fight Night 11, will be out of action for at least four months. Thomas sustained the injury in the first round of his bout against Florian when he attempted to shoot in for a takedown. The injury caused Thomas to cover up and ultimately submit before the round ended as a direct result of the injury.
After undergoing an MRI he is expected to have surgery to repair the damage:
Results from an MRI showed that Thomas suffered a torn meniscus, stretched anterior cruciate ligament, and bruised femur and tibia. Thomas is going to see a knee specialist in Atlanta next week. He will likely have arthroscopic surgery performed within the next two weeks.
Following the surgery, Thomas will have to undergo at least two weeks of rehabilitation before he will be able to resume training.
A rematch may be on the horizon once Thomas is healed as fans and Thomas himself have called for another bout against Florian.
