Johny Hendricks vs Stephen Thompson staredown pic, video highlights from UFC Fight Night 82 media day

Say cheese!

The flashbulbs were popping earlier today (Weds., Feb. 3, 2016) on the casino floor inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, thanks to a special media day for mixed martial arts (MMA) reporters in town to cover UFC Fight Night 82: "Hendricks vs. Thompson."

As the name suggests, this Saturday night's (Feb. 6) combat sports extravaganza will be topped by former UFC Welterweight champion Johny Hendricks (17-3), as he throws down with kickboxing import and 170-pound "Wonderboy" Stephen Thompson (11-1).

Watch them come face-to-face for the first time in the photo above.

In the UFC Fight Night 82 co-main event, long-time Heavyweight hurter Roy Nelson (20-12) will test his takedown defense against collegiate wrestling standout Jared "Big Show" Rosholt (14-2), who puts his three-fight win streak on the line against "Big Country."

Watch them square off below:
