THOMPSON ANOTHER VICTIM OF PRIDE’S LACK OF PED TESTING?
James Thompson was a high profile signing for Elite XC but it appears to be money wasted.
Brett Rogers, a no-name heavyweight with just seven fights under his belt, destroyed “The Colossus” inside of three minutes. Thompson’s chin is terrible. This makes it KO losses in five of his last eight fights. That includes a 10 second KO at the hands of Neil Grove in July of 2007. It was Grove’s third fight.
Even Showtime’s Mauro Ranallo, normally a cheerleader for the network’s MMA cards, couldn’t lie about Thompson. He was mocking on The Colossus’ chin just seconds before the KO.
Not only is Thompson’s chin getting worse but so is his body. He normally fights between 264-275. He was only 253 this time around.
Check out the pics (right side is Saturday night), see any difference in the physique?
No one is saying Thompson was using but Pride Fighters for the most part have seemed smaller once they reached the American shores. There was no PED testing in Japan. Thompson was 4-1 in Pride.
