March Badness: Din Thomas Wins, Tells Rihanna He'll Whoop Chris Brown

Mixed martial artist Din Thomas knocked someone out on Saturday night in Pensacola, Florida. And after he KO'd Gabe Lemley in the ring at March Badness, he offered to knock out someone else: Chris Brown.

Thomas, a former Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor, used a brutal knee to the face to knock out Lemley at the March Badness MMA and boxing event. Then, in the ring, he grabbed the microphone and told the crowd and the pay-per-view audience watching at home that he'd love to do the same to Brown.

"It's not cool to put your hands on a woman," Thomas said. "So Rhianna, if you want someone to kick his ass, holler at me."

Thomas, who improved his professional record to 24-8, is a featherweight who tips the scales at just 145 pounds. But with his knockout power and his black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, he'd have no trouble giving Brown a whooping. Brown had better hope Rihanna doesn't take Thomas up on the offer.
