UFC charades: Watch Stephen Thompson pull off perfect Conor McGregor power walk impression

New, comments

It was all fun and games for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight king Tyron Woodley and No. 1 contender Stephen Thompson when the two met on the set of UFC Tonight earlier this week. Despite being less than two months away from their highly-anticipated welterweight title rematch at UFC 209 on Mar. 4, the two UFC stars set their differences aside to partake in a good old fashioned game of charades, teaming up to take on the analyst squad of Daniel Cormier and Kenny Florian.

While the game of charades offered a few solid impersonations of current UFC fighters (shown above courtesy of UFC on FOX), such as Lyoto Machida, Demetrious Johnson, Roy Nelson, Donald Cerrone and Sage Northcutt, it was Thompson's take on Conor McGregor's power walk that took the cake (the infamous move can be seen at the 2:55 mark). The impression may even beat out that of NBA star Marc Gasol, which can be seen below:

In any case, it's nice to see Woodley and Thompson put their beef aside to crack some jokes in the mixed martial arts (MMA) spotlight. But don't get it wrong. These two welterweights are going to give each other hell after fighting to a majority draw back at UFC 205.
