    I was walking around about 182 about a week before the fight and I weighed myself before I went out to fight and I only got back up to 178 so I was def smaller.. walking around bigger now

    Wonderboy this is gonna be a rough question. Tyron said something a long the lines that he was a better fighter than you, and the only reason you would have a chance at winning is that your were a better point fighter than him. He then proceeded to go out there take you down, almost knocked you out on your feet, and the only disputed fact is how many rounds you won. You showed a ton of heart and you're one of my favorite fighters, but what makes you think this time this fight would be different? Specifically what did you learn from that fight?

    Hey Stephen good luck against Tyron

    Do you plan on training with Weidman much for his fight with Gegard? Really wanna see him climb back into the title picture as well

    The hardest I think I've EVER been hit was when Jake ellenberfer smoked me in the noggin in the first round. That was a doozy lol. Well I need to do different is just let my hands go I was too hesitant in that last fight

    Stephen,

    I understand you trained with Daniel O'brien. I was wondering if you felt that helped you and if you planned on training with him again for another camp? Big fan and good luck!

    Hey Stephen, UFC 209 is a stacked card. Do you plan on watching some of the other fights or is that just a distraction for you? And what is your take on Hunto vs. Overeem?

    I'm no pro but I think at the end of each round, permitted you're standing, you should throw some flying ninja voodoo style kick. You can never go wrong with flying ninja voodoo style!

    seriously though, even considering round 4 of the first fight you weren't far off from that belt. You got this!

    Hiii @Stephen Thompson!!!!

    I must know, what goes through your head at the end of a fight like your last fight against Woodley? You were incredibly resilient, and that has to take a ton of mental and physical strength.

    Well you have to try and put yourself in very uncomfortable positions whenever you train for fights so that way if you're ever in those tough situations you know how to cope with him. But literally I'm thinking to myself I'm never giving up
