Din Thomas says support local fighters and local shows (in an interview with Thegarv.com) "To the fans, just keep supporting the game and this is something I’m very adamant about; don’t just support the high-level guys. This is something that I don’t really like, these guys go to the bar and they drop a 100 dollars on drinks and whatever the case may be, but when a local show comes through the area they want to get free tickets, you know what I’m saying?" "They just dropped a 100 dollars at the bar, gettin’ drunk, showing off for their friends but they want to get free tickets to a local show—and the local fighters need the money. Dana White don’t need the money like the local fighters do!" "What I’m saying is, don’t just support the biggest shows."

More details on Don King's filed injunction against Mayorga, Shine Fights: Don King Productions states that Mayorga’s proposed MMA bout includes the discipline of boxing, of which it believes it has the exclusive rights to promote the fighter. In addition to Mayorga’s alleged breach of contract, DKP’s motion also claims Shine Fight Promotions conducted in "tortuous conduct" to acquire Mayorga’s services and that the boxer’s participation in Saturday’s bout could damage Mayorga’s body and his reputation. The motion also argues that if Mayorga loses to or is injured by Thomas, it will "substantially impair" the boxing organization’s ability to promote Mayorga moving forward. DKP states that it has already secured Mayorga’s next boxing assignment against current WBA World Middleweight Champion Felix Sturm in August or September 2010. -- Full write-up at Sherdog.com

Ricardo Mayorga says "I will destroy Din Thomas" at Shine Fights May 15: "I conquered the world in the boxing ring all the while I was puffing cigarettes and drinking beer. I won three world title belts and I stood toe-to-toe with so many legends, beating some of them. Vernon Forrest, God rest his soul, was a great boxer yet I beat him back twice. I cannot be denied as I am a force of nature. Now I will shock the MMA fans and I know so many of my fans from boxing will follow me as I expand my repertoire. They can't deny me in MMA and I will destroy Din Thomas. I am going to smash him the way I smashed all the big superstars of boxing. To me, a fight is a fight in a ring, in a cage or on the street. Fighting is my middle name." HT: boxingscene.com (via mmamania.com)

"I got to 146.6 and when I asked the athletic commission if I was okay, they said ‘yes.’ It made sense because some commissions allow you a two-pound allowance. So I left the stage and started drinking right away to get rehydrated. Javier’s camp then apparently told the commission that they wanted me to cut the extra half-pound. So I tried and damn near killed myself in the sauna. It didn’t make sense — if Javier wanted me to cut the weight why wasn’t I told on the stage? I would have dropped my drawers and made it." --Din Thomas, talks to mmamania about the weight cut that forced him out off Ultimate Chaos card
