Oli Thompson Wiki Update Wiki

Oliver John Thompson is a British strongman (and former "Britain's Strongest Man") turned mixed martial artist. He made his debut in February of 2009 for the UK-based promotion ZT Fight Night winning his first fight by submission. After compiling a 9-2 record in England, he was offered a contract with the juggernaut MMA promotion UFC. Unfortunately his stint with them lasted only two fights, both of which he lost - to Shawn Jordan and fellow British heavyweight Philip De Fries respectively. After being released from the promotion he would return to his winning ways by going 3-1 in his next 4 fights, his only loss being a decision to the accomplished grappler and future KSW Heavyweight champion Karol Bedorf. After defeating in dominating fashion his next opponent for the Polish based promotion, he was offered a bout against his former strongman competition, Poland's own Mariusz Pudzianowski.
