Some cardio...and a chin...and a ground game and not letting the opponent dictate the fight.

Thompson is a step up for Kimbo from the complete jokes he's faced so far but not a big one considering Kimbo's strength is striking and we know Thompson can't take a punch. If Thompson is smart enough to go the ground he'd probably win. His ground game isn't great but it is probably better than Kimbo's.

However past fights have given no indication that Thompson is anywhere near intelligent enough to do that so he'll probably just trade and get knocked out. Again.
