Stephen Thompson’s used to fighting in front of an adversarial crowd before, after all, he’s had over 70 bouts to date. But, “Wonderboy” concedes he’s in a new type of “enemy territory” for his next bout, when he faces Darren Till at UFC Fight Night 130.
That’s because Sunday’s fight will go down in Till’s native Liverpool, and it will mark the first time the UFC has held an event in the English city. The UFC decided to book the bout in the historic city, on account of Till’s rise up the welterweight ranks.
Well, recently Thompson spoke with BT Sports, while donning an Everton FC kit at Goodison Park. While doing so, the former kickboxer talked about why his bout Sunday is a unique experience for him, and what’s on the line. You can check it out below.
