Video: UFC Looks At ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson’s Rise “From Karate Kid To MMA”

On Tuesday evening, UFC added a new video primer for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 89 event in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Embedded above is “Fight Night Ottawa: Stephen Thompson — From Karate Kid to MMA,” which looks at the rise of “Wonderboy” Thompson inside the Octagon, as he prepares for his second major welterweight challenge this weekend in Canada.

Fresh off of his knockout over Johny Hendricks earlier this year, Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson meets former UFC title contender Rory MacDonald in the main event of UFC Fight Night 89.

The official description for the video featured above reads:

“Stephen Thompson’s transition from karate kid to mixed martial artist has been a successful one. Thompson is one win away from a potential title shot as he fights Rory MacDonald in the main event at Fight Night Ottawa on Saturday on FS1.”

UFC Fight Night 89: MacDonald vs. Thompson is scheduled for Saturday, June 18, 2016 from the TD Place Arena in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
