Mixed Martial Artist Din Thomas knocked Gabe Lemley out on Saturday night and then offered his fighting services to Rihanna as well.
Thomas fought on the under card of March Badness, a PPV fight that featured Roy Jones, Jr. in Pensacola, Florida. After his victory over Lemley, Thomas called out Chris Brown.
“It’s not cool to put your hands on a woman,” Thomas said from the ring. “So Rhianna, if you want someone to kick his a**, holler at me.”
Thomas, a native of Wilmington, Delaware, knocked out his opponent with a vicious knee to the face.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor is a featherweight that weighs about 145 when he is actively training.
He is also renown for his knockout power and his black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
In an exclusive interview, Thomas went into further detail, while acknowledging his offer to Rihanna still stands. “I’m not a bully,” Thomas explained to AllHipHop.com exclusively. “Anytime you try to take advantage of a person, whether it’s a girl or a kid its just plain wrong. It’s generally called a mat bully [in MMA]. And in my place, it gets dealt with. They say we don’t know what happened, but she didn’t go in the car with two black eyes and bite marks. There should be no point where you have to beat a girl like that. I don’t like to see bullies take advantage of people.”
In related news, R&B singer/actor Tyrese has revealed that Chris Brown is experiencing stress from the pressures surrounding the Rihanna case.
“Although he appears to be really strong through all of this, it’s really taking a toll on his spirit,” Tyrese stated in an interview with People.com on Sunday. “People like me and Puff [Diddy], we’re just trying to show him love and keep his spirits up while he’s going through all of the heat, and there are a lot people doing the same for Rihanna.”
Brown faces arraignment on April 6 on felony assault charges and making criminal threats from an alleged attack against Rihanna on February 8.
“It’s really hard for him to focus right now on his music, even though he really wants to,” Gibson continued. “At the end of the day, I’m not trying to justify it because wrong is wrong, but unfortunately, us as entertainers, we have to grow up onstage with a lot of people looking at us.”

February 09, 2009. MediaTakeOut.com just got some BREAKING NEWS. According to a person close to Rihanna, the R&B singer will not file criminal charges against R&B singer Chris Brown for assault and battery.
Last night, Chris Brown was arrested and released on $50,000 bail in connection with an alleged assault against R&B singer Rihanna Fenty. As MediaTakeOut.com reported to you yesterday, Chris and Rihanna got into a scuffle while leaving Saturday night’s Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy party.
A person close to the situation told MediaTakeOut.com that the scuffle was caused by the couple’s recent break up. As MediaTakeOut.com reported to you weeks ago, the couple had been ratcheting down on their high-profile love affair. Numerous sources confirmed to MediaTakeOut.com that Chris wanted to END the relationship – but Rihanna didn’t.
We should be clear. It’s not clear what occurred during the scuffle – or who did what to whom.
But things have changed since Saturday night. Now MediaTakeOut.com can EXCLUSIVELY report that Rihanna does NOT want Chris Brown to be criminally punished for the alleged assault. According to an EXTREMELY reliable insider, Rihanna is NO LONGER assisting investigators in their criminal case against Chris Brown.
Unfortunately for Chris, that’s probably not going to make the charges go away. Police claim that, on the scene of the incident, Rihanna identified Chris Brown as the man who assaulted her. Additionally, police have physical evidence. MediaTakeOut.com can OFFICIALLY CONFIRM that Rihanna’s face and arm were severely bruised in the incident and Chris suffered from minor bruising as well.
There is some evidence in Chris’ favor, however. For example, according to a MediaTakeOut.com reader on the scene, Rihanna did NOT call the police alleging that Chris assaulted her. It was a bystander that called 9-1-1. Shortly afterwards, the police arrived on scene and interviewed Rihanna.
We’ll continue bringing you periodic updates into exactly what’s going on in this story. Trust when we tell you that NO OTHER NEWS SOURCE in the world has more access to the people around Chris and Rihanna than MediaTakeOut.com does.
Also just to clear things up, there are a few FAKE rumors out there that we need to clear up:
