Josh Thomson Doesn’t Know If He’s in UFC’s Title Plans, but Wouldn’t Turn It Down (UFC video)


Josh Thomson StrikeforceJosh Thomson has been a Strikeforce lightweight champion. And he was fighting at a championship level the last time he set foot in the Octagon, albeit nine years ago. And he made a huge splash upon his return at UFC on Fox 7 on Saturday night, knocking out Nate Diaz, one of the UFC’s top lightweights.

But does that put him right into the title picture? Thomson says that isn’t for him to decide, but that if the UFC comes knocking, he’s not going to look the other way.

“I did what I could to be impressive and put me up there, but that’s not my decision though,” Thomson said after his fight. “If they want to throw me up there, I’m definitely not gonna turn that (expletive) down.”
