Not many fighters could have made a better debut with the UFC than Stephen Thompson's at UFC 143 earlier this year. "Wonderboy" delivered a knockout-kick to Dan Stittgen, earning Knockout of the Night honors and an extra $65,000.
Thompson will look to keep his momentum going when he takes on Matt Brown at UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans on April 21 from Atlanta, Georgia. The 28-year-old is 6-0 in MMA and 63-0 in kickboxing matches.
"Fans are going to say after watching me, 'Wow, I heard about this guy, and it's all true," Thompson said.
