Former UFC Welterweight title contender Stephen Thompson suffered a unanimous decision defeat against Darren Till at UFC Liverpool last day. Although the decision sounds ideal on paper, it was a controversial one and the fans are still debating on whether or not Till actually won.

Thompson also has similar doubts. He thought that he won four or three rounds out of the five.

“I thought I had four of the rounds. Could be controversial, three maybe? I don’t know. I felt like I would hit and move. The only really good shot he had was that one shot in the fifth round, but other than that it was pretty close. I felt comfortable out there. I realized how big he was so I knew I had to stay on my bike and keep moving. I knew it was going to be a close fight, but I thought I had edged it out. He’s a big boy, he’s hard to move around. Didn’t move anywhere, came forward, tough guy,” Thompson said during the post-fight interview. (via MMA Fighting)

Almost stopped

Thompson also recalled about the time when he was almost stopped by Till during the fight.

“I was dazed for a minute, I was definitely going all the way down. Just smoked me right on the back of the head here. I went down, been hit there before, but recovered well, got right back up to my feet, so I didn’t go out, my legs gave out a little bit and that was it. It staggered me a little bit, but I didn’t black out or anything. I finished the round okay I thought. Thank goodness I was blessed with a hard head,” he added.

When concluding, Thompson went on to add that he loved the whole thing even though Till missed weight.

“Even though he didn’t make weight, it’s in his hometown, I love being here, I love the fight game, I love to put on a show for everybody that came out and for the people who helped get me here. This is what I do,” Thompson said.
