Stephen Thompson projectile vomited ‘in front of the entire UFC roster’ at UFC 264

“Wonderboy” apparently throws up like he throws kicks — with impressive range.

Stephen Thompson threw up spinning kicks and stomach contents at UFC 264.

Thompson had a tough three-round battle with Gilbert Burns at UFC 264, which took place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 10, 2021, with Dustin Poirier vs. Conor McGregor 3 serving as headliner. Earlier that week, “Sin City” served as a battleground for a battle deep, deep within “Wonderboy.”

“While you’re there, we have food and I’ve got like five shakes that I have to drink, along with some water. Now I’m depleted of pretty much everything at this point, and these shakes have a ton of sodium, sugars, vitamins, minerals, potassium — it’s got everything you can think of in a shake, so it’s rough on the body if you chug it, right?” Thompson said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel (h/t MMA Fighting). “I’m sitting there with my dad with a bunch of fighters around me and people are coming over to try and talk to me, and I already drank my first drink along with like two water bottles. And then I started getting — something started to happen to me.

“Dad runs over there and pushes some UFC fighters away to try and get this thing to me — and he doesn’t get it to me,” Thompson said. “I projectile vomit everywhere. In front of the entire UFC roster. In front of everybody.”

Thompson lost a closely-contested unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) to Burns in the co-main event of UFC 264. It snapped a two-fight win streak for the former two-time UFC Welterweight title challenger.
