Stephen Thompson has a career defining match ahead of him at UFC 264. The number 5 ranked welterweight will be taking on Gilbert Burns who is ranked number 2 in the division. A win here for Wonderboy might even grant him a title shot against the champ Kamaru Usman, since he is the only high-profile fighter to have not fought ‘the Nigerian Nightmare’.
The 38-year old is very active on social media and in fact has his own YouTube channel, where he posts regular breakdown of several fights. He is very attached to his family, and is also nicknamed the NMF – Nicest M***** F*****. However, not much is known about his love life. So, who is Stephen Thompson’s girlfriend?
Stephen Thompson’s girlfriend?
Stephen Thompson is single and isn’t dating anyone. The 38-year old has never been previously engaged as well. Right now he is in one of the most important phases of his career, and might be too busy to get himself romantically involved with someone else.
However, there was a time when he was rumoured to be dating Octagon ring girl Red Dela Cruz. During 2016, Thompson was a part of the UFC Asia Tour. Thompson was at the peak of his powers in 2016, he fought for the welterweight title against (then champion) Tyron Woodley which ended in a draw. And during his time in Phillippines, ring girl Red Dela Cruz was supposed to be his companion for the tour, since she was of Filipino descent.
It was during that time, when Thompson and Red Dela Cruz were rumoured to be dating. The pair were spotted at several events together. However, it all died down in a matter of months. Probably she was nothing more than a companion! Who knows?!
