Re: MMA Discussion Thread- UFC 200 HYPE
Here is my train of thought: Wonderboy Thompson beat the steroid-junkie-Johny-Hendricks who came off quitting all those PEDS. Thompson beat a very gun-shy McDonald who wanted to go home and pet his nose.
But Thompson is overrated. A fighter who can rush in and clinch him with mui-thai and decent wrestling will crush him. Time will tell.
He could well be overrated but there's no denying that he's looking pretty unstoppable at the moment. His control of distance is among the best in the UFC. If Lawler gets through Woodley I think Wonderboy would definitely have a good chance of taking the belt from him.
Wonderboy fought a very smart fight against Rory and didn't let Rory take it to ground and dictate it from there. I'd be confident that he'd plan accordingly for Robbie too.
