Din Thomas will face Josh Neer at UFC Fight Night 13 in April. The event, which takes place in Broomfield, Colorado, features Joe Lauzon versus Kenny Florian in the nights main event as well as Karo Parisyan versus Thiago Alves and Stephan Bonnar versus Matt Hamill in featured main card bouts.
Thomas (20-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC) last fought in the UFC in September at UFC Fight Night 11 losing to Kenny Florian after suffering a knee injury. Prior to the loss Thomas had won three straight UFC fights against Rich Clementi, Clay Guida, and Jeremy Stephens. In October Thomas was arrested on charges of holding un-sanctioned MMA bouts but the charges were later dropped.
Neer (23-6-1 MMA, 2-3 UFC) debuted in the UFC in 2005 losing to Drew Fickett at UFC Fight Night 1. Following the loss “The Dentist” posted a 2-1 record and returned to the UFC posting wins over Melvin Guillard and Joe Stevenson. In his next two fights, however, he was defeated by Josh Burkman and Nick Diaz and left the promotion to fight elsewhere. Following the back-to-back losses Neer has gone 6-1.
