“Wonderboy” has two fighters on his mind, Condit and Lawler.
UFC welterweight contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson is coming off of another loss to the champion Tyron Woodley. NOt looking back, “Wonderboy” already has new fights on his mind.
In a recent interview on the SFLC Podcast, as transcribed by Fansided, Thompson admitted what fights he is looking for in the near future.
“I’m looking to fight a top-ranked guy or two. I know there’s a lot of talk about Gunnar Nelson. I think he’s ranked number nine, I’m looking at one through five fight now. I know Demian Maia has a fight coming up with Masivdal. Hopefully (Carlos) Condit, you hear word about him retiring. I’ve always wanted to step out with him, or even Robbie Lawler. I think Gunnar Nelson fights one of those top guys, proves himself that he’s able to go up there. I think in the future we’ll be facing each other but right now it’s those top five guys that I’m looking at.”
Doubling down on his two fighters of choice, Thompson said
“It is what it is, if there’s nobody to fight in the top five, then we may be facing each other. You never know. But I’m looking at Condit or Robbie Lawler.”
Stephen Thompson lost to champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 209 by way of majority decision.
