The king of the UFC welterweights, Kamaru usman, could come across Stephen Thompson soon. His belt is claimed by many, but “Wonderboy” would be one step away from facing it. This Saturday, in the UFC 264, will face Gilbert Burns, who was the last to fight the Nigerian. Therefore, given the chance to ascend to the crossing for the crown, the American spoke with UFC Arabia and nothing was saved.
At first, Thompson dictated: «I am glad that Gilbert Burns I took this fight because a lot of the top five ranked above me are unwilling to fight. I am happy and blessed that Gilbert Burns is facing this fight. I know it’s going to be difficult. Of course, I fought one of his best friends, Vicente Luque, about a year and a half ago, Geoff Neal recently in December.
“The best Gilbert Burns Of all time, I know you want that back He was devastated after that loss, so I know he wants it back. I know he’s training extra, extra hard to get back at that title contest, so I’m ready for the best Gilbert Burns. The most motivated, dedicated, a guy who is on point with his punches and his fight, and that’s what he wanted. I want to test myself against these guys, “he said.
Will it be Wonderboy time?
On the other hand, Stephen He maintained: “At this point, I am 38 years old, I have been fighting for a long time. Obviously the title is always there, but what matters most to me is to keep improving. Keep improving everywhere, and I think by doing that and that’s your main focus, the title will come. A lot of guys focus only on the title and aren’t willing to do the work it takes to get there. “
“If I come out with a good victory, I hope I do. I’m like the only kid he hasn’t faced in the top five yet. He faced Leon Edwards early in his career. He has fought Colby Covington. Has fought against Gilbert Burns. The only boy is me. Of course I’m not looking past Gilbert. I have a tough guy in front of me this Saturday, so I have to be prepared, “he completed Stephen Thompson.
