Stephen Thompson gets hyped talking about his favorite anime character

UFC welterweight prospect Stephen Thompson recently revealed his favorite anime character.

In the last episode of MMA Pros Pick with James Lynch, Stephen Thompson shared his admiration for the Japanese anime series One Punch Man. The show follows a superhero who can defeat any opponent with a single punch. Thompson also compared the character to UFC featherweight prospect Marlon Moraes, noting the similarities between the two.

The 39-year-old American fighter said:

“As of now there is an anime character and it’s One Punch Man! If you’ve ever seen One Punch Man, it’s the exact copy of Marlon Moraes… Look at Marlon Moraes and google One Punch Man. They’re the exact same person. But he’s like an overpowered superhero…It’s not a cartoon, it’s an anime, just to get this straight.”

“My dad is like, “Man Stephen, do you watch cartoons?” And I’m like, “Dad, woah! It’s not comics man. It’s anime.” Let’s get it right. But check it out. One Punch Man is my jam.”
