Stephen Thompson completely destroyed Johny Hendricks in the main event of UFC Fight Night 82 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The former welterweight champion had no answer for Thompson's phenomenal striking skills, and for a man who withstood the hardest shots from the likes of Condit, Koscheck, Lawler 2x, and several other top names at welterweight, Wonderboy became the first man to knockdown and finish "Bigg Rigg".

The 1st round KO drew quite the reaction on Twitter, so go on and read it.
