In recent years, the UFC has undoubtedly stockpiled the majority of the world's top MMA talent.

However, despite a brief two-fight run in the organization in 2005 and 2006, Minnesota-native Nick Thompson (38-10-1) has proven it is possible to succeed in the sport by seeking out the best opponents not in the world's premier organization – and compiling a solid record and reputation in the process.

Thompson's next challenge is a middleweight bout with Tim Kennedy (9-2) at Friday's "Strikeforce Challengers: Villasenor vs. 'Cyborg'" in Kent, Wash., and he recently joined MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) to discuss the bout and the future direction of his career.
