Thomas being a well-rounded athlete joined the Varsity Track Team, competing in the pole vault and 400 m Dash. During his first year at college Thomas still frequented the Wrestling room to get little workouts in with his friends. One day while working out Bryan Caraway and JJ Mix entered the room and started free rolling and practicing MMA. This intrigued Thomas very much, so he asked to join in. A month later Thomas was supporting his new teammate Bryan Caraway for his first title fight against Chanti Johnson. During the event a 3-0 fighter entered the ring and his opponent was nowhere to be found. A nervous but confident 19 year old Thomas decided that he would take the opponent's place and try out MMA for the first time. During Thomas’ college days he had an overall record of 16-4 and a professional record of 3-0. During the rise in Thomas’ fight career an injury lead him to finish out his Bachelor's degree at Central Washington University and open WarriorCamp in his hometown of Spokane, WA. During the first year of operation Thomas also broke into the realm of promotions, starting up an amateur MMA event called Proving Grounds. Thomas’ business slowly became profitable after about 1 years time. In March of 2013 Thomas opened FighterBonus Corporation, a worldwide company focused around MMA and the fans of MMA. Now, Thomas runs Multiple Companies and is training out of his hometown for chance to fight in the UFC.
