The Ground Never Misses wants to send a shout out to Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson as he heads into his first main event with the UFC this weekend on UFC Fight Night FS1! This will be by far Wonderboy’s toughest challenge to date in Johnny Hendricks.
Thompson surely has the upper hand in striking as his long reach enables him to stick and get out with powerful punches and traditional karate kicks that catch many MMA fighters off guard. Hendricks brings an amazing work ethic and conditioning protocol to the octagon where he will rely on his wrestling pedigree.
A win Saturday night puts Thompson into serious talks for title contention in the next year or so, but we get ahead of ourselves…
Kick ass and take names Wonderboy! Seattle is behind you!
