    I've spent the last hour looking for the results of Din's fight. Now I find out that it's been called off due to a miriad of unfortunate events.

    Bummer.

    I got a hold of Din Thomas. While I will not quote him directly, he told me the following:

    - He was notified 6 days ahead of the event that the event was postponed
    - He was not given specifics as to why
    - He is fighting Feb. 7th in MO with Ben Askren (already posted)

    Much props to Din and his willingness to be so open and honest with us.

    Bad luck and a disappointing turn of events on many levels. I look forward to seeing Din kicking some ass.

    Thanks for getting the info Sandy. This news is awful. No one should have to deal with that kind of adversity.

    What Sundance said.

    The Patriot Act card in Colombia, Missouri on February 7th. It's the same card that Ben Askren is making his MMA debut. Should be an interesting night.

    Hell yeah!

    Din is always worth the $$, and he and some of the others at ATT are right about Askren, you'll get to see the debut of the "Next Big Thing"

    Most def! I cant believe I didnt hear anything about it till now. Musta missed the Askren thread. Ive rolled with a few of the guys at the ATT in Columbia when it first opened up and there's a chance my old roommate is fightin on the card as well. Havent talked to him in a while and they only list like 4 fighters on the site to buy tix. Either way any live MMA is good MMA.....as long as its not Yamma, lol!
