The Ultimate Fight Championship (UFC) is coming to Greenville on June 22nd of this year.

Greenville native, Stephen Thompson, is currently scheduled to headline the fight and he says will do so as long as he is physically capable.

Thompson is currently the 5th ranked fighter in the welterweight division of the MMA, according to the MMA Junkie welterweight rankings. He also currently boasts a record of 14 wins, 3 losses, and 1 draw.

Thompson’s opponent in this summer’s fight has yet to be determined, but he says if it was up to him, he would want to fight 9th ranked Robbie Lawler.

Plans for a Thompson-Lawler fight have fallen through in the past, but Thompson is hopeful this time will be different.

No matter who Thompson fights one thing will be for sure, he will be welcomed with open arms by his hometown.
