Din Thomas Arrested For Running Illegal MMA Fights
According to TCPalm, UFC Fighter was playing promoter at his gym in Palm Springs Florida. The only problem is he didn’t tell the Athletic commission.
Din Thomas, well-known in the Ultimate Fighting Championship world, was arrested Tuesday after police say he ran “illegal cage fighting” matches at a local training studio that he runs, a police spokesman said.
Thomas, 31, faces a felony prohibited competitions charge after police got a tip Oct. 19 about the matches at a facility he uses in St. Lucie West.
Inside, they observed two men fighting in an octagon-shaped ring surrounded by about 150 spectators. The fights reportedly weren’t sanctioned.
