Despite dealing with an MCL injury, the former two-time welterweight title challenger Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson can’t wait to back into action.

Thompson suffered a knee injury in his last fight against fellow title challenger Darren Till at UFC Liverpool in May. Fortunately the injury didn’t have any surgical repercussions as Thompson was advised only around 6-8 weeks of rest.

That being said, Thompson vows to step back inside the octagon as soon as possible and maybe even next month on the iconic UFC 230 card against the man he is slated to fight anyway, former UFC welterweight champion ‘Ruthless’ Robbie Lawler.

“I dunno man, I want to fight someone in the top 5,” Thompson said.

“I got bumped down to #3. You got Robbie Lawler, hopefully, maybe things will just right because I know he had knee surgery a few months back so hopefully things will go just right and the timings work out so we could face each other or something.

“I got fans all the time asking me ‘why don’t you fight Robbie Lawler?’ I think, I got a lot of respect for him and it would be a barnburner.

“He’s just stands there and wants to bang it out. I love fighting guys like that — without getting hit in the knee of course.”

“Hopefully we can get that shot at MSG, that would be sick.”

Thompson was scheduled to take on Lawler at UFC’s first event on ESPN in January next year. However, few days after, Thompson claimed nothing is ‘stepped in stone’ when it comes to him fighting Lawler.
