Video: Stephen Thompson destroys a bodybuilder with leg kicks

Bodybuilder Houston Jones wanted to see if he could take some of some Wonderboy’s leg kicks. It didn’t go well for him.

Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson has long been known as one of the best strikers in the UFC, and his kicks in particular are quite popular. So when pro bodybuilder Houston Jones wanted to take some leg kicks from the former welterweight title challenger, hilarity was about to ensue.

Thompson took to social media to pass on the video of him kicking Jones ten times. He didn’t even put everything into it, stating that he only started at 15% brutality and was up to 45% by the end.

As you can tell by Jones’ reaction, that was NOT the best idea in the world.

Wonderboy (15-4-1, 10-4-1 UFC) is coming off a performance bonus-winning decision win over Vicente Luque in his last bout. He didn’t want to fight Khamzat Chimaev next due to him being unranked, so he will be matched up with Geoff Neal in December instead.

You can watch a longer video of the devastation below. Yikes.
