Stephen Thompson Says… “I Would Hate Fighting Him (GSP)”

Stephen Thompson Says...

Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson recently had an interview…

He said some interesting things…

He talked about how didn’t want to fight GSP…

“I would hate [fighting him]. I would hate the day where I would have to step out there with a guy who inspired me first in kickboxing to [try] mixed martial arts. He was my inspiration,” Thompson told the Fight Society podcast. “He’s a good friend of mine. That would be a hard one to be honest with you just emotionally because he’s a good bud. But you never know.

He talked about how  he doesn’t do it for the money…

“Yeah for me it is about fighting the best people in the world and proving that I am the best fighter, not only to the world but to myself,” Thompson said. “I’ve been doing this since I was three years old and this is who I am. This is my life and I want to be the best. I do it for the honor and the glory and it’s not about that big paycheck.”

And then talked about the most exciting topic of them all… Conor McGregor…

“Everybody asks ‘would you fight Conor McGregor?’ — of course I’d fight Conor McGregor but it’s not because of the money,” Thompson explained. “It’s because he’s such a huge martial artist and everybody considers themselves the best if you fight Conor McGregor, if you beat Conor McGregor. I look at it like that.”

What do you think? Should he fight Conor? Should he fight GSP? How about a Rory MacDonald bout?

Hell, we’d take a Gumby VS. Wonderboy superfight just in order to see Thompson fight again… 😉
