Trash talk has become part of the fight business and many fans love fighters who trash talk but Stephen Thompson is among those fighters who don’t talk trash and is still loved by many.
Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson recently talked to Jimmy Smith and said that Trash talk is part of the game.
Jimmy Smith asked Stephen Thompson what if your opponent is a Chael Sonnen level trash talker, will you take the trash talk personally.?To which Stephen Thompson replied,
“No, I don’t take it personally at all. Listen! It’s part of the game. The trash talk is a part of the game. I mean, Conor McGregor even Muhammad Ali was like the first trash talker and these guys, they do that not only to build the fight up, yeah! they want to make the fight exciting but they do that to get in the your head, you know! That’s my job, like I, the way I fight I try to frustrate you and lot of these guys can’t do that in the cage and they try to do it before, you know. They try to get in the head and I’ve seen Conor McGregor. Now Conor McGregor is.. he can back it up like, he is a very skilled fighter.“
