After 62 Straight Kickboxing and MMA Wins, Stephen Thompson Makes UFC Debut   [View Full Version]
emfleek » Posted 11/18/07 4:54:00PM

Jan 31, 2012 - The numbers are something out of a video game or a movie or someone's imagination. In amateur kickboxing, Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson was 37-0. As a pro kickboxer, 20-0. As a professional mixed martial artist, he's 5-0 so far. That's 62 straight fights without a loss.

But it's no facade, and his record is no product of fishy matchmaking. In fact, despite his newness on the MMA scene, he's already wowed some of this sports' brightest minds.Georges St-Pierre's trainer Firas Zahabi recently called Thompson "definitely the best karate guy, the best striker I've ever seen, all around in any sport."

The welterweight brings his exceptional record to this weekend's UFC 143, where he faces fellow octagon rookie Daniel Stittgen, hoping to extend his ridiculous streak.

I love this idea, but man those WW wrestlers are a dime a dozen in the UFC. I hope his TDD is nasty (supposedly is if he calls wrestling his second strongest skill) so we can see him blast fools.

Koscheck, Pierce, Hendricks, Shields, GSP, Fitch, Ellenberger, Hughes, BJ, MacDonald, Brenneman, Story, Pyle IMO the hardest division for a striker to drop or enter into....

DHK prefers the fight on the ground too.

If we're basing it off fighters wanting it on the ground also add Sanchez, Hathaway and Ebersole to that list! I was only thinking of wrestling backgrounds!

well think about it. if you are fighting someone with this kind of striking resume, wouldnt you want to take it to the ground? im sure even Dan Hardy would try for takedowns lol

Hmmm... I think Stephen Thompson would probably outwrestle Hardy

both of them have not beat anyone with that impressive of a record. Thompson is a BJJ black belt so i think he will be fine on the ground.
