East-central Illinois welterweight Ryan "The Tank Engine" Thomas is a fast-rising star already well known around his hometown. However, he expects that recognition to increase with his recently announced entry into the Bellator Fighting Championship welterweight tournament. Thomas had a two-fight stint in the UFC in late 2008, losing two hard-fought bouts against Ben Saunders and Matt Brown. Thomas' last fight was in August 2009, where he had his best win to date when he submitted Ryan Stout, a veteran with over a decade in the fight game, in a minute and a half. That win impressed the right people, and he is now scheduled to face off against Olympian Ben Askren at "Bellator 14" on April 15. "The Tank Engine" recently sat down with MMA Spot to discuss his training, his thoughts on drawing Askren in the first round, and what winning the welterweight title would mean to him.
