I see Thomas as a possible breakout star. He's extremely unique as no one does anything even close to him. There's never been a true capoeira guy and he does stuff no one else is able to do. I've been pushing on my blog since his debut that they need to go a RVD like route with him or treat him as some Bruce Lee master of the martial arts type, and it will work. He needs to get matched up with some flippy guys though. Kickers and Flippy guys always match. He could also be good against pure strikers.
The big problem he has is that no one knows how to work him. If you watch his matches, you can tell that his opponents legit look concerned about what strike they will be taking next. At this moment, he'd be best in squashes where he can show off his cool stuff.
I'd also like to see some vignette's with him and more on his martial arts background to make him more unique.
