Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson supports Michael ‘Venom’ Page’s ‘boring fight’ remark amid potential UFC bout

Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson is a veteran in MMA. Despite never winning the elusive UFC title, he is one of the greatest fighters to ever step foot inside the octagon. At the age of 41, the ‘Wonderboy’ is still looking to sharpen his skills and wants to fight a wrestler in his next bout.

However, it is speculated that ‘Wonderboy’ could face Michael ‘Venom’ Page as early as UFC 302. But nothing has been confirmed as of now by the UFC or Dana White. Besides that, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson himself is not at all excited to fight MVP, as he believes that it would be a very boring fight for the fans.

“We have such similar styles and it could possibly be a very boring fight for everybody,” said Thompson.

He also added, “We’re both counter strikers with very similar styles so it could possibly be me and him just bouncing out there in the middle, just waiting on somebody to do something and even though we have similar styles, that doesn’t always make it an exciting fight. So he’s a good friend of mine, a good martial artist, and a and a karate guy. At this point, I don’t think it’s necessary but he’s going to keep working his way up and he might even jump past me to fight some of these guys because he’s such a hype train right now.”

Both Thompson and MVP defeated Kevin Holland during their intense fights. But in his last fight against Shavkat Rakhmonov, Thompson suffered a brutal loss, which possibly ruined his chances for a title shot.

For years, fans have wanted to see Thompson and MVP compete with each other, even when MVP was fighting at the PFL. Although Thompson’s next move remains uncertain, he has already decided on the type of opponent he wants to face.
