UFC is embarking on fights of contenders for the interim belt. First casualty is Stephen Thompson who lost by unanimous decision to undefeated Darren Till. The 5-round fight was lackluster because of Thompson’s fighting style that is highly defensive. But in the last round, Till hit Thompson with a haymaker that caused a clear knockdown. And although Thompson was able to stand up at once, that knockdown caused him the decision.
