Stephen Thompson vs Geoff Neal full fight video preview for UFC Vegas 17 main event

Stephen Thompson and Geoff Neal will collide for a spot in the 170-pound title chase when they hook ‘em up in the UFC Vegas 17 welterweight main event TONIGHT (Sat., Dec. 19, 2020) inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Thompson (15-4-1) has not competed since capturing a unanimous decision win over Vicente Luque back in late 2019. The 37 year-old “Wonderboy” is ranked No. 5 in the welterweight division despite losing three of his last five.

Neal (13-2), ranked No. 11, cut his teeth on season one of Dana White’s “Contender Series” and has looked electric ever since. “Handz of Steel” is now 5-0 inside the Octagon with four finishes, including last December’s destruction of Mike Perry.
