he does not have a black belt in BJJ. the time I met him he seemed like a nice kid so I hope he does well. Matt Brown will be a great gauge of where he is at. Interesting fight.

I'm really looking forward to watching his career progress. It's great for me to see someone with an American Karate background/style do well in the UFC.

 That would require someone in his weight class with K-1 level striking.

I know my record isn't very good. But out of all my ammy & pro fights I've only been hurt in one fight. It was to this guy. He's the real deal.

For all the naysayers, if GSP, you know the welterweight world champion says he's good then he must be.

Watched some of his kickboxing matches before his debut and becameA huge fan. I will not stop till I can kick like him, the fluidity and the accuracy is art in motion yo, Matt brown is in trouble. I think Thompson is already a middle tier fighter in the division with only a huge upside that we have yet to see.
