Dag, I was really excited to see him get back out there. His striking is great but with the kicks and weak ground game, he gasses a bit early.

Agreed. I was impressed that he went the distance with Matt Brown. Brown was beating the piss out of him with that ground and pound, and if I recall, Thompson even had a late comeback and hurt him. He showed some great heart. If he can shore up his cardio and ground game, it'd be great to see.

More like Wonderbread...

Seriously though, sucks to see him off the card. At least the injury isn't to serious.
