Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson given key to city, Simpsonville, S.C.

After returning home to Simpsonville, South Carolina, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson was given the key to the city along with the State Flag. Thompson challenged Tyron Woodley the night before, for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden.

A teary eyed Wonderboy said, “This is awesome right?  Even though I didn’t win…. this means so much more.  I love you guys, I really do. …… Even though I didn’t bring that belt home, to have all that love and support here, it’s amazing.”
