    Just reading that this fight was announced for the UFC on fox 12 card. Very good match up and I hope neither guy gets injured before because I really want to see this fight. It's going to be an insane fight because it's safe to assume they aren't taking this to the ground.

    A war on the feet is what I expect to see, with some great exchanges. I'm picking thompson for this one, his sneaky attack plus ever improving boxing/clinch work makes for a dangerous fighter. Anybody who will stand and trade with thompson in a kickboxing type of match will get outclassed. You can bet on a Thompson unanimous decision.

    You'll regret not doing it if your sarcasm is correct

    Hard to bet against Thiago against another striker.

    Thiago seems far too experienced at this stage for Thompson but then again Thompson's looked pretty good so far. Could be a great fight if true

    Nothing on google about this fight. But if we're talking about experience, Thompson has a lot more experience when it comes to striking. So unless Thiago mixes things up with some grappling and/or tries to clinch fight/dirty box, he will probably lose.

    Thompson has been a striker even before entering MMA. He's an accurate striker w/ enough power to hurt anyone with a variety of shots....I'm going with wonderboy specially with the "rust factor" on Thiago...

    most likely scenario...
