He would begin a four fight skid in 2005 with a draw and three losses in a row. He would take eight months off and return with a victory in 2007. After this win, Tom would take an additional 30 months off from competition. in early 2010, he would return and rattled off five wins in nine months while picking up featherweight titles in Turku Fight and Cage. After another eleven month layoff, he would return with another KO to defend his Cage title. He would fight outside of Europe for the first time in 2012 when he picked up a submission win for Titan FC. He would go on to defend his Cage title three times in ten months including wins over Bellator vet Chase Beebe and UFC vet, Walel Watson.  

 
In late 2013, Tom would be signed by the UFC. He was looking to keep his eleven fight win streak going when he took on Rani Yahya at The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale. He was able to control much of the fight on the ground and picked up a decision victory.
