“Now I’m on almost everything right now, and these shakes have a ton of sodium, sugars, vitamins, minerals, potassium – it has everything you can think of in a shake, so it’s rough on the body when you sniff it.” , However?
“I’m sitting there with my dad with a bunch of fighters around me and people come up to me to talk to me, and I already had my first drink along with two water bottles. And then I started to get — something started to happen to me.
“Daddy runs over there and pushes some UFC fighters to try and get this thing on me — and he’s not getting it on me,” Thompson said.
The 38-year-old was able to joke about the incident more than a week later

He is true to his form in the self-deprecating anecdote and recovered from the break-in incident for his co-main event.
But he was denied a third win in a row as the judges all scored the match in Burns’ favor (29-28, 29-28, 29-28).
