A welterweight bout between Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson (6-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Besam Yousef (6-1 MMA, 0-1 UFC) now is set for the show. The fight was announced on Tuesday's edition of "UFC Tonight" on FUEL TV. |
UFC 154 takes place Nov. 17 at Bell Centre in Montreal with a main event between UFC welterweight champ St-Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) and interim titleholder Carlos Condit (28-5 MMA, 5-1 UFC) to unify the belts. The co-main event is a No. 1 contender's bout between Johny Hendricks (13-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) and Martin Kampmann (20-5 MMA, 11-4 UFC).
Thompson took the UFC by storm in February at UFC 143 when he knocked out Dan Stittgen in the opening bout in Las Vegas. The head kick KO earned him "Knockout of the Night" honors in his UFC debut. But his next fight was a different story. In April, Thompson lost a unanimous decision to veteran Matt Brown at UFC 145 in Atlanta. The loss was the first of Thompson's MMA career
Now the elite-level kickboxer, whose record in that sport reportedly is 63-0, will look to get back in the win column north of the border.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
