I'm sick of just discussing the main event, lets talk about something positive.
Last night on the Facebook undercard Stephen Thompson impressed me.
I had him picked to win by KO but not in the fashion he did nor as quickly.
He's now 6-0 with 3 KO/TKO's and 1 submission. He's a black belt in Japanese Jiujitsu and and blue belt in BJJ. He's a black belt in Kempo Karate. He trains under 8th degree BJJ black belt Carlos Machado(His brother in law). So in addition to his fantastic striking, he can grapple as well. Link to the MMA Fighting Article about him prior to the fight. This guy is 28 years old, he's still pretty young and he will move up the latter quickly. Who do you want to see him matched up against?
Are you excited about what this guy can do?
