MMA star Stephen Thompson has revealed he threw up ‘in front of entire roster’ after the weigh-in for UFC 264.
The 38-year-old went on to lose his fight to Gilbert Burns, 35, by unanimous decision ahead of Conor McGregor’s loss to Dustin Poirier.
Thompson, also known as ‘Wonderboy’, suffered the fifth defeat of his MMA career and his first since losing to Anthony Pettis in 2019.
Discussing the weigh-in on his YouTube channel, Thompson said: “We have food and I’ve got like five shakes that I have to drink, along with some water.
“Now I’m depleted of pretty much everything at this point, and these shakes have a ton of sodium, sugars, vitamins, minerals, potassium.
“It’s got everything you can think of in a shake, so it’s rough on the body if you chug it, right?
“I’m sitting there with my dad with a bunch of fighters around me and people are coming over to try and talk to me, and I already drank my first drink along with like two water bottles.
“And then I started getting – something started to happen to me.
“Dad runs over there and pushes some UFC fighters away to try and get this thing to me – and he doesn’t get it to me.
“I projectile vomit everywhere. In front of the entire UFC roster. In front of everybody.”

The American, 32, and his friend Jake Paul have been mocking McGregor, 33, on social media by showing off a ‘Sleepy Mac’ necklace – alluding to his first defeat to Poirier in January.
YouTuber Paul, 24, has also called out McGregor, insisting the UFC icon ‘would not stand a chance’ against him in a boxing ring.
