    Kind of confused on how someone can outstrike a lethal striker in a stand up only fight and still lose a fight and then get blamed for lack of action afterwards.....while the hometown boy is busy calling out people after he lost the fight...

    Even in post-fight, you have old man Bisping over here throwing a bunch of shade on wonderboy, even though he outstruck Till....

    If there was anyone that thought Thompson would get a decision win in England yall must of been drinking too much, the moment that fight ended anyone with a brain called it that it will be theft.

    Neither fighter did anything amazing, but if the fight is 100% standing, then how does a person who clearly outstruck his opponent not win the fight, and then gets blamed for not doing enough afterward....A predictable outcome in a lackluster fight, but no excuse for this kind of theft and the hating.

    Uh it was boring. Both was playing it safe and doing what they need to do so they won't get KTFO. It is what it is. - Blessed

    Wander boy backed up the whole fight.
    His leg was beat up from strikes and till knocked him down the last round.
    Till didn't have a scratch on him from the sparring session.

    I had the fight a total draw until the knockdown..

    No over analysis . no robbery .
    That's how it was.

    Because he is BORING.


    Dude doesn’t come to win fights, he comes to win rounds.


    Glad Till got the hometown decision. Hopefully Wonderchick is sent back to the prelims, FAR away from main events.

    It’s because he’s involved in more of these types of situations.

    He ran the whole fight, shit was boring because of it. Till didn't do much but it takes 2 to tangle.

    Finally, this is not being brought up simply because a majority on here don't like Thompson. Till did barely anything except wave his hands and shake his head, while dancing around the cage. It takes two people to fight.

    WB should have known that a close fight that went to decision would almost certainly go Tills way. But in spite of this he was still on his bike the whole fight pitter pattering and doing the bare minimum to try and edge rounds,. He didnt want to engage with Till at all and then got caught and dropped which was more significant than anything he did across the whole 5 rounds.

    Exactly. People acting as if they've never seen Wonderboy fight before.. this is how he fights. He does what he does and makes others have to adjust to him. The only surprise was the damn decision. Also where the hell was this " Gorilla" I kept hearing about???

    The numbers show that Till outstruck Wonderboy.

    Plus, Wonderboy's last 4 fights have been boring for some people. He is a common denominator if 4 boring recent contests. Maybe it is just a coincidence.

    Wonderboy was more accurate. Unfortunately for those karate fighters moving backwards is bad with the judges. Till was the aggressor and landed harder shots. Plus it was in UK . Thompson was doomed before the score was read

    Till had him against the cage a bunch of times and did nothing... Pretending like wonderboy only ran even though he outstruck him pretty clearly for 4 rounds, still trying to figure out what Till did to win that fight.

    Well he was the general. He was more offensive. Landed the only big shot. Till was the boss. Wonderboy didn't bring any fight.

    He did not do enough and someone alluded to it correctly one of his fan's actually, the guy cannot fight coming forward, he is a terribly boring point fighter fighting in the wrong weight class, if he dropped down and starved himself a bit more which unfortunately is "standard" these day's he would be champ a long time. He has no power to trouble Till or Woodley and requires a miracle or decision, this is not good.
