Sherdog.com is reporting that MMA veteran Din Thomas will be forced to pull out of his scrap against Javier Vazquez just hours before “Ultimate Chaos” is set to kick off. Instead, it appears that Vazquez will take on Mark Kergosien, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist from the Mississippi area.
“Din pulled out,” said Romie Aram, founders of the Millennia Mixed Martial Arts Training Center, where Vazquez trains. “He had issues making weight and got himself sick.”
The American Top Team fighter tipped the scales at 146.6 pounds at yesterday’s weigh-ins. Thomas has fought in many weight classes throughout his MMA career, however most have been in the 155-pound lightweight division.
Vazquez will be riding a three-fight winning streak into his tussle with Kergosien, who has never been finished in 14 career bouts.
“Ultimate Chaos” will be held inside the Mississippi Gulf Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi. You can order the main bouts LIVE on pay-per-view for $29.95 beginning at 9PM ET/6PM PT.
