    Wonderboy is an ultimate gentleman, he knew Luque was done and let off the last 30 seconds

      Nah I just think he was being cautious since he was knocked out by Pettis in that same position, also Wonderboy likes to snipe, he likes to pick his shots.

    Luque is such a beast....in some of the replay slowmos the guy does not even blink when he gets punched in the eye. Over and over again , some men are just born to take a punch and others can take everything you got all night and still put your lights out at anytime.
    Respect to both fighters

      @mobucks555 yep ,.that punch made my nose bleed and I was in Queens .
      Luque also took a horrible liver shot ( round house kick ) his reaction to it was a frown ☹️ that's it .
      KICKED IN THE LIVER AND THE GUY FROWNS !!!!!

    I was NOT a fan going into this fight of Luque, but after this fight witnessing his toughness, fighter IQ, sportsmanship, and respect of the sport and his opponent, he definitely won me over as a fan. But im still a bigger Wonderboy fan.

    • NB

      @jordan norman Having your hands up is a boxing thing. In Karate you don't have to keep hands up because the strikes are from much more distance.
      Also keeping hands down means the opponent cannot see where the punches come from.

    • Londinium Armoury
      Londinium Armoury 2 months ago +1

      @Peezie Forestem There's a few other benefits as well, like avoiding hand fighting, and people grabbing your hands, lots of fighters will grab your lead hand and throw an overhand with the other so you can't evade/move out of range or parry it.
      it can help with explosive power generation for starting a blitz as well. If your hands are always up in front of your face they don't have the same power, wonderboy doesn't have to pull his punches back to generate full power, because they are always cocked and ready to blow, helps with his switch style of kicks too.

  • Charles Stoll
    Charles Stoll Month ago

    I genuinely hope WB earns one last title shot. Especially against Edwards although if he can tighten up the takedown defense Usman would be great too. IMO Edwards v Thompson would be one of the UFCs best fights stylistically and likely be on the reels for years.

    Wonderboy's performances against Luque and Neill were top class. Probably the most skillful striker at WW. Holland has one punch KO power but Wonderboy has the overall skill advantage. Great fight expected.

    I always thought Wonderboy is the best Striker in the UFC, I mean there are close seconds like Yan, Jan, Adelasagna, Prime Conor(only in his era), Gane, Fiziev and maybe even Poirier but I think if you go by era Prime Wonderboy was on another level and I think he was the best striker in the UFC.(but he has weaknesses like, not good boxing defense, not checking leg kicks and lacking killer instinct in some fights but at the same time these are all normal for his era)

    Wonderboy is so nice. Around the end of the third round, he saw Luque all bloodied up, and so he stopped throwing straight punches. Went for kicks to the side, punches to the side, but not straight to the face.

      @R W he let luque up because Thompson hates wrestling.

      Likewise when he stopped with the ground and pound and just let Luque get up. He was winning the fight, so why smash Luque up?
      Good dude.

      I was a bit disappointed that Wondeboy did not throw kicks in rd 3 when Luque was just absent minded and bloodied up.
      Could have literally KOed the man with head kicks. But at the same time, its more humanitarian to end the fight like that.

      Nah, Wonder Boy broke his hands. He has no problem busting someone up.

      There is no reason to hurt him. He had won the fight already. Its a sport not a deathmatch. At least that seems to be Wonderboys outlook.

      @TheChosenMoose Brady just got KO’d by fuckin Belah Muhamed 😂 before that got saved by the bell in the 3rd against Chiesa, basically coming off 2 tko losses against the 2 softest decision fighters in the welterweight divison, but nah he finishes Luque 😂

    Wow, what a fight!
    Such great sportsmanship. Representing MMA with class.
    Luque is tough! Those side kicks by Thompson are incredible. I’m no fighter but took good bit of martial arts. Side kicks like that’s were just too hard for most of us to achieve a lot of power with. Hated them.
    Look forward to seeing more fights from them both.

    Nobody at the top represents martial arts like Wonderboy. Control when to be dangerous and respectful. Be disciplined. Master your style. Challenge yourself. Be an example to the next generation. Even if you can associate the mindset of a warrior and the one of a martial artist, you will never say to your kids that this is war and the objective is to kill or be killed. I know it's an entertaining narrative for the fans, but i appreciate wonderboy for what hes doing in and outside the cage.

    The issue Thompson had in this fight which has been a recurring one for him is breaking his hand(s) I wonder if that’s an issue with technique carryover from karate to MMA?

    • moto2016

      It's definitely an issue when the guy doesn't get knocked out and you have to keep punching!

    You can tell that Wonderboy always goes for the knockout instead of submission based on how he reacts to his opponent. If he wanted to jump on em he wouldn't have let him up after that rollover. He's gutsy. I like that. 😎👏👏👏👏💯

    Great display of technique from Wonderboy. Luque is way too static with his head movement. Same problem with Charles Oliveira.

    You can defiantly tell Thompson has some compassion because I think if he wanted to he could of finished this guy off no problem, he knew he had the fight won and I don't think he really wanted to hurt him. That's just the feeling I got .
