UFC’s Brandon Thatch Set to Fight Stephen Thompson
By FCF Staff
A busy week of fight announcements continues for the UFC, as the promotion has also confirmed that Brandon Thatch will fight Stephen Thompson at the promotion’s Fight Night event on February 14th.
The upcoming card will be hosted by the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colorado.
Thatch (11-1) hasn’t fought now since last November, when he knocked out Paulo Thiago at Fight Night card in Brazil. The Colorado fighter was scheduled to fight Jordan Mein this past summer, but a toe injury forced him to withdraw. The welterweight has won 10 straight bouts.
Thompson (10-1) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Patrick Cote in September, which was the fighter’s fourth straight victory. The only man to defeat the noted striker to date is welterweight contender Matt Brown, who decisioned him in 2012.
Earlier in the week the UFC announced that the February 14th card will also feature Zach Makovsky vs. Timothy Elliott and Chris Kelades vs. Patrick Holohan.
