Thompson, a two-time title contender, most recently went up against welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Their bouts ended in a draw and loss for Thompson respectively. Prior to that pair of fights, however, "Wonderboy" had claimed seven victories in a row. He also underwent knee surgery back in late March, though it was described as "routine" and went successfully.
Ion Cutelaba    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Cutelaba will face Gadzhimurad Antigulov in a light heavyweight fight at UFC 217 on November 4 in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Cutelaba has had an up-and-down record with the UFC since debuting in 2016. He scored his first stoppage with the promotion against Henrique da Silva (KO/TKO-punch) in his last fight to move his record to 13-3, 1NC (2-2 UFC). The southpaw lands an average 4.15 significant strikes per minute and has 10 KO/TKO victories.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Antigulov will face Ion Cutelaba in a light heavyweight battle at UFC 217 on November 4 in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Antigulov has done well in his first two UFC fights, scoring submission wins in the first round over Marcos Rogerio de Lima and Joachim Christensen. He landed an average 8.65 takedowns with 100 percent accuracy in those two outings. The Russian has impressive ground skills that have gained him 15 submission wins over his career. He maintains a 20-4 career record.
Patrick Cummins    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Cummins will face Corey Anderson in a light heavyweight bout at UFC 217 on November 4 in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Cummins (36) is nine years older than Anderson but has experience on his side. He has faced some of the division's top competitors in Daniel Cormier and Ovince St. Preux. Although he suffered losses on both occasions, he has two straight wins against Gian Villante and Jan Blachowicz (unanimous decisions) entering this fight. "Durkin" is 10-4 (7-4 UFC) and lands an impressive 5.34 takedowns per fight while maintaining a 71 percent takedown defense.
Corey Anderson    UFC    Light Heavyweight
Anderson will face Patrick Cummins in a light heavyweight contest at UFC 217 on November 4 in New York.

Fantasy Analysis

Anderson lands plenty of significant strikes and has four TKO wins to show for it. His footwork has improved but his fight strategies are off. "Overtime" kept distance before trying for a takedown against Jimi Manuwa and was caught circling. He also engaged in a kickboxing match against Shogun Rua, who relies mainly on striking. If Anderson can put together and stick to a sound plan, he will give Cummins a solid fight. He is 9-3 overall (6-3 UFC).
