Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight No. 1 contender, Stephen Thompson, will try to finish what he started at UFC 205 last November by turning away Tyron Woodley this weekend in “Sin City.”
I think we know who Georges St-Pierre is rooting for.
“Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson is a good friend of mine and also one of my best training partners,” St-Pierre said. “He has the tools to become champion. It’s only a matter of time for him and he’s getting better every day. I called him before a ‘secret weapon,’ but now he’s not a secret weapon anymore. ‘Wonderboy’ is the best striker I’ve seen in my life.”
Woodley thinks he has the perfect fighter to emulate that style.
We’ll find out when they throw hands for “The Chosen One’s” crown in the UFC 209 pay-per-view (PPV) main event this Saturday night (March 4, 2017) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
