Watch: Fantastic New ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson Documentary Released Ahead Of UFC 205

UFC 205 is just around the corner and with that, the good people at Fight Network have elected to create a brand-new, 22-minute long documentary that involves a highly insightful sit down with UFC welterweight title challenger Stephen Thompson, one that no fight fan should miss.

“Wonderboy” has set the world of combat sports alight for some time now. His run as a kickboxer saw him step away with a highly impressive 57-0 record.

His move to MMA, barring one set back to the ‘Immortal’ Matt Brown has been packed to the brim with highlight-reel knockouts, ground-breaking Kempo karate skills and has been a real-time look at how someone with virtually no grappling experience can improve leaps and bounds in a short amount of time.

Thompson is a high-level athlete in every sense of the word.

Even prior to his run in MMA he was brought into the training camps of several top UFC combatants, with former-welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre calling him the greatest striker to ever train inside the walls of Tristar Gym.

His UFC 205 bout with Tyron Woodley for the welterweight championship may just be his toughest test to date but, as the documentary shows, we have on our hands an athlete with a healthy addiction to success and a proven drive to improve and reap the benefits of a growth mindset.

You can watch the documentary as uploaded by the official Youtube channel of the Fight Network, below, a true must-see for any fans of the sport.
