FORT PIERCE — Prosecutors this morning decided not to file charges against a nationally-renowned mixed martial arts fighter who was arrested in October after investigators alleged he organized “illegal cage fighting” matches in a St. Lucie West warehouse.

Din Thomas, 31, of Port St. Lucie – who made a name for himself while competing in the Ultimate Fighting Championship – was arrested on Oct. 31. Port St. Lucie police at the time said he organized and promoted an unsanctioned and unlicensed match out of a warehouse at 494 NW Lake Whitney Place, near Peacock Boulevard, that drew more than 150 spectators.
