Watch: ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson’s Top-5 Knockouts Ahead Of UFC Nashville

Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson will return to the octagon tonight to face Anthony Pettis in a bout that will tell us a lot about his place in the title-picture at 170lbs.

UFC Nashville’s headliner is becoming more tantalising to the fans by the day.

Sure, many are picking Thompson to win comfortably against the former lightweight champion but in truth, when you consider Pettis’ toughness and dynamism, this is the type of fight that can change radically in an instant.

If you want to know how we see it playing out, read our prediction here.

Wonderboy’s rise to the top of the welterweight crop was exciting an original run as you will ever see in the sport.

Before our very eyes, he matured from limited karateka to the more complete fighter we all know now before eventually going to work on the divisional top dogs.

Knockouts of Jake Ellenberger, Johny Hendricks, Robert Whittaker, and more will live long in the memory and with him set to engage in a pivotal fight for his career tonight, the UFC have captured the man’s talent perfectly by compiling his top-5 best knockouts.
