Stephen Thompson explains “weird” second fight with Tyron Woodley

Stephen Thompson explains “weird” second fight with Tyron Woodley

Last month, in the main event of [UFC 209](https://www.bjpenn…

“TYRON WAS KIND OF VERY LAID BACK IN THE FIGHT,” THOMPSON SAID OF WHAT SURPRISED HIM MOST ABOUT THE REMATCH. “[HE WAS] KIND OF SLOW. HE WAS BACKING UP A LOT – WELL PRETTY MUCH THE WHOLE FIGHT – SO IT DIDN’T MAKE FOR AN ENTERTAINING FIGHT. THERE WAS A LOT OF RESPECT THERE [BETWEEN US]. I WANT MY NEXT FIGHT TO BE WITH SOMEONE WHO LIKES TO PUSH THE PACE. I THINK THE FANS WOULD REALLY ENJOY A FIGHT BETWEEN MYSELF AND CARLOS CONDIT OR NICK DIAZ.”
