The experienced fighter from UFC, Stephen Thompson, he wants to go for the title of his division. Although the aforementioned gave a masterful class in the last fight of 2020, he has an even greater desire for 2021. Thus, he added a 16-4-1 MMA, 11-4-1 UFC with that last win, so it is better position in the table. Now “Wonderboy” spoke to the press and made it clear that he should be the first choice and not Leon Edwards.
In that sense, Thompson He stressed the following: “With the touch of an eye, there is only one thing to do, and that is to go back. I know Edwards is saying he deserves the title next, but you can’t get the title after being out for two years and then having a no-contest with a punch to the eye. I know Edwards is like, ‘No man, I want to fight for the title.’
“Come on, dude. You haven’t fought. I deserve the title more than you deserve it right now. Just say. You know what I mean? Let’s go guys. I’m the only guy Usman hasn’t fought with. If I’d thought that, you and Dad would slap me into oblivion, saying, ‘No, you’re doing it with this guy. You’re not going to get a title shot because of that, ‘”said the fighter.
In that way Stephen He also explained: “It was the second time you were warned, right? That should have been a disqualification. It was a contest, what? Edwards should have been disqualified. That’s twice. They warned him, he did it again, done-zo. It looked really sharp, it looked really stylish, it looked fast. That’s the best way I’ve ever seen Edwards. He looked shattered.
“His fighting skills, he had a great sense of time, he looked very calm. He had Belal backing away. I made him win the fight to the point where he punched Muhammad in the eye and Muhammad was unable to continue. But anything can happen. Belal was saying that he was just warming up. I’ve been calling him constantly. What? How could you say that? I called you in a nice way », he closed Stephen Thompson.
