Albert Tumenov Calls For Fight With Stephen Thompson, Battle of “Best Strikers” in WW Division
By FCF Staff
Stephen Thompson has called for a title shot, after taking out Johny Hendricks last weekend, but Albert Tumenov has asked if he might be interested in facing him.
Thompson stopped Hendricks in the opening around at UFC FN 82 this past weekend, and as a result, the vaunted striker has moved into the #3 spot at 170. Tumenov has been impressed with what the welterweight has showcased, and recently the fighter posted the following challenge.
Обещал никого не вызывать, но бой Томпсон -Туменов, Битва двух школ, двух интеллектов. Я думаю "Wonderboy- Einstein" лучшие ударники дивизиона. Скоро у меня свадьба, но если бы дали бой в мае – июне, была бы "ПОЭЗИЯ"в октагоне! I did promise , do not challenge anybody , but fight Thompson vs Tumenov , it's fight of two schools, two intelligence. I think " Wonderboy-Einstein " are the best strikers of division… I am getting married very soon , but if give me this fight on May or June , that will be a real show " poetry in octagon " @ufc @wonderboymma @danawhiteufc @muratkeshtov
Tumenov is coming off a split decision win over Lorenz Larkin last month and has won five straight. The welterweight is ranked #14.
