One of Colorado's finest, welterweight prospect Brandon Thatch, will make his long-awaited Octagon return in his home state on February 14, as he takes on fellow striker Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson in an early Fight of the Night candidate at 1st Bank Center in Broomfield.
Unbeaten in his last 10 fights dating back to 2009, Thatch has used his varied striking attack to finish both Justin Edwards and Paulo Thiago in the Octagon, and after a layoff of over a year due to injury, he intends to pick up where he left off against Thompson.
Winner of four straight, South Carolina's Thompson defines the word "dynamic" when it comes to his stand-up game, and after a trio of wins over Chris Clements, Robert Whittaker, and Patrick Cote, "Wonderboy" is on the verge of contendership in the stacked welterweight division.
