UFC's Din Thomas discusses upcoming fight against Kenny Florian
UFC veteran Din Thomas takes on Kenny Florian Sept. 19 at UFC Fight Night. The lightweight match could play a very pivotal role in who contends for the title if Sean Sherk's appeal fails and he is stripped of the belt.
MMA Madness writer Ryan McKinnell interviewed Thomas a couple of weeks ago in advance of this fight. It was a wide-ranging interview that covered a number of topics including Thomas' fight against Florian.
When asked if he felt he deserved a title shot if he wins this fight, Thomas responded by saying:
Definitely. You know, I have been hearing all this other nonsense about Tyson Griffin getting in line, and Thiago Tavares. And I’m just thinking, man, these guys are just getting here, you know what I’m saying? What have they done? I’ve been with the UFC since 2001 and I have those wins over the guys you just said. I’m 3-0 in my last current run and I have a win over the current champ Matt Serra. Sorry Matt, had to say it! But you know, it’s the truth, it’s a fact. I mean he just fought for the belt a couple months ago, you know? If I win this coming fight, how can you deny me?
