Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson has been training with some of the best fighters in the world and it looks like it’s finally starting to pay off. Thompson has always had the skill to be a main event fighter, but the right opportunity never popped up. With all eyes on him, he showcased his skills and proved that he has what it takes to be a ranked fighter in the octagon.
Thompson landed not only one, but TWO spinning heel kicks that sent Jake Ellenberger tumbling to the canvas last night. The latter of the two was the knockout blow and it even brought UFC fighters to their feet. Check out their reactions below!
