#1 ranked former UFC welterweight title contender Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson returned to the cage tonight to face the overweight prospect Darren Till in Till’s hometown of Liverpool England.
Till initially weighed in at 173 pounds and was given an extra hour and he came back at 173 and 1/2 pounds this time.
Wonderboy flew to a 25-year-old's backyard who was ranked lower than him, watched him miss weight, beat him (IMO), watched the decision go (unanimously) against him, and managed to smile as it happened. Man.

Wonderboy agreed to face him for 30% of his purse and Till had to make 188 pounds before stepping on the bus to the arena.
Really close fight, no one was robbed. But the hometown crowd noise for Till influenced the scoring IMO. @ufc
