"I didn't realize he was going to be as hesitant in this one," Thompson said. "He was backing up a lot. I knew he was waiting for me to come in. You want to go out there and get a spectacular knockout, but when you get in there, it's a different feel. I think only fighters can understand that."
"I've been working on my wrestling tremendously," Thompson said. "Every time I step out there, I expect to get taken down, but I'm ready for it and I'll pop right back up and get the fight where I want to keep it, and that's standing."
