Thompson's striking is a unique challenge to anyone who can not avoid it. He certainly has a style I imagine will put him on the fast track to better things, but WW is deep and has many sharks. He has some tough matchups of his own on the horizon.
Whittikar is not bad, but he wasn't ready for this tonight. I think he has a high upside, but being at this level in the UFC this fast might be detrimental to his near term development. He needs a lot of polish still.
I like MMA less because of this forum
