Few days ago, it was revealed that former two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson was set to take on former welterweight champion ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler at the UFC’s debut card on ESPN on January 18.
However in a recent interview with BJPENN.com’s Chris Taylor, Wonderboy claimed that nothing has been materialized yet.
“I’m definitely up for it. Unfortunately at this time there is just nothing set in stone when it comes to me fighting Robbie. It has been mentioned by the UFC but that is about it. I don’t even know if Robbie would be ready by January. So at this time I really don’t know who I’ll be facing next. It could really be anybody at this point.”
With the Lawler fight far from a done deal, Wonderboy has decided to shift his attention towards other options.
“There are some tough dudes out there at welterweight. Colby Covington, Rafael dos Anjos, Kamaru Usman and obviously Robbie Lawler come to mind right off the hop.” Thompson said of potential future opponents.
Thompson with 1-2-1 in his last four fights, will like to get back on winning ways after recovering from a knee recent surgery.
