Stephen Thompson: Say Hello To The Bad Guy

Two weeks ago, I sat up at 2am hotly anticipating an arranged telephone interview with the UFC’s number one Welterweight Contender Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson. As a long-time fan of Thompsons, we exchanged formalities to begin our conversation and I had been instantly captivated by the sheer charm of the 35 year old from South Carolina. At a time when trash talking is a formality, it was refreshing to hear someone remain true to themselves, particularly when the opposite characteristics have proven to be so successful with a certain contender that fights for an interim belt at UFC225.
