Thompson to fight in Madison
Local welterweight Nick "The Goat" Thompson will make his fifth appearance for the "Madtown Throwdown" promotion on January 17. Thompson (36-10-1) will headline the promotion's eighteenth installment, taking place at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum in the Alliant Energy Center, against an opponent to be determined.
Thompson recently lost to Jake Shields via guillotine choke submission at EliteXC "Unfinished Business" on July 26. The loss, with the EliteXC welterweight title on the line, snapped a 12-fight win streak.
Prior to the EliteXC fight, Thompson fought twice in Japan for the WVR "Sengoku" promotion, defeating Fabricio Monteiro (17-7) and Michael Costa (9-4).
