Thompson compared Rakhmonov to Rory MacDonald

American welterweight Stephen Thompson shared his opinion about his next opponent Shavkate Rakhmonov. Stephen noted that “Nomad” knows how to work excellently in the stand and fight, and also knows how to perfectly connect and combine all this.

“What makes him really dangerous is not the punching or the good wrestling, but the fact that he can put it all together. This kind of brings me back to Rory MacDonald. When I fought with him, he was absolutely magnificent,” said the fighter.

Let us remind you that the confrontation between Thompson and Rakhmonov will take place on December 16 as part of UFC 296.
