If you have not heard of highly touted prospect Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson (6-0) you must of missed his first round head kick KO victory at UFC 143, Feb. 4. The bout proved to gain Thompson the “Knockout of The Night” bonus over UFC vet. Matt Brown.
With both men making a splash on the recent card, the two have agreed to battle at UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans in Atlanta, GA on April 21.
“The Immortal,” Brown will be looking to string together a new win-streak after struggling with up and down victories from 2010 – 2011.
Thompson a Kenpo Karate, Jiu Jitsu, and kickboxing black belt has high expectations as a UFC newcomer. Transferring from a perfect 20-0 kickboxing career, the 28 year old has proven to be graceful on the feet and expected to be dangerous on the ground with credentials from the former BJJ world master, Carlos Machado.
