Biography
Born in Rochdale to a Northern Irish father and English mother, Thompson grew up playing rugby league. Widely considered to be a talented player, at one point in time he did consider pursuing a professional career in rugby. Ultimately, he ended up working as debt collector and nightclub bouncer, whilst also competing in amateur bodybuilding. Thompson then took up the sport of wrestling and competed in several matches before eventually seeing an MMA bout featuring Don Frye , which ultimately inspired him to pursue a career in MMA. Thompson initially started watching DVDs on boxing, wrestling, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and then began training in all three martial arts disciplines.
