    He isn't losing to anyone on the feet. And Hendricks was the Welterweight who was most likely to get takedowns. Thompson has already passed his toughest test. The only way he isn't the next champion is if he doesn't get the next crack at Lawler. There's only 4 ways I see that happening:
    1. Condit gets his rematch
    2. GSP returns to face Lawler
    3. Diaz returns to face Lawler
    4. McGregor takes the Lightweight title and immediately goes after the Welterweight title
    There's no way Maia or Brown or Magny or Lombard or Woodley or any other Welterweight not listed above gets the shot over Stephen Thompson.

    100% he ruins them on the feet and his wrestling is good enough

    I agree and I'm a huge Lawler fan.
