Thompson was victorious at UFC 165...
During the post-fight press conference for UFC 165, Stephen Thompson talked about his win over Chris Clements and voiced his desire to eventually rematch to Matt Brown. Thompson defeated Clements via TKO during the Fox Sports 1 prelims for UFC 165. Below are some highlights:
Thompson on his loss to Matt Brown: "My second fight in the UFC, I fought Matt Brown, who's doing awesome right now. I'm cheering him on. He's doing a great job. But he's the only thing on my mind right now. He's my only loss since I've been in the fight game, so I've got to work my way up and see if we can do it again. I think we put on a good show that night, and I think we can do it again."
Thompson on how the fight with Clements went: "It played out the way we played it at the gym. I knew he was going to come out. He had some pretty cool tricks in the first round. That cool dragon-tail sweep was pretty. I always thought about doing that to somebody, and it happens to me. I knew he was going to swing. He left himself open. I was just looking for that window, and there it was."
