UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs. Neal Results

Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson picked up a unanimous decision victory in his welterweight fight with Geoff Neal. Both fighters clashed heads in round one, and the collision opened up nasty cuts on both fighters. It was Wonderboy who outshined Neal with superior footwork and impressive speed throughout the fight, enroute to victory.

Jose Aldo looked super impressive when he got the nod over Marlon Vera in their 135-pound co-main event. Aldo went on to call out former bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw in his post fight interview.

Rob Font returned from a year on the sidelines, a bad knee halted his career as he stepped into the octagon for the first time in 2020. Font knocked out former title challenger Marlon Moraes in round one and moves himself right into title contender status in the bantamweight division.
