Former UFC title challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson has revealed who he wants to fight next, and where he wants it to take place.
While doing an interview with Luke Thomas, Thompson said he verbally agreed to fight fellow UFC welterweight contender Jorge Masvidal in his next UFC fight.
Thompson also says he would like for his next fight to take place at UFC 217 on Nov. 4. UFC 217 will be the UFC’s second event to take place at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In his last fight, Thompson lost a decision to UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley back in March. In his prior fight, Thompson fought Woodley to a draw at UFC 205 last November.
Masvidal is also coming off a decision loss. In May, Masvidal lost a split decision to Demain Maia at UFC 211.
UFC 217 will be headlined by UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping defending his title against former UFC champion Georges St-Pierre.
