Bodog Fight

Following his fights in the UFC, and after three warm-up fights with smaller organizations, Thompson signed with Bodog Fight, a former MMA organisation. After cutting through three Bodog opponents, Thompson was offered his title fight with Eddie Alvarez, a previously undefeated fighter. After winning his fight against Alvarez on April 14, 2007, Thompson has since defended his title twice.[1]

World Victory Road

Nick's final title defense against John Troyer was the last fight on his contract with Bodog.[6] Rumors of his intent to sign with World Victory Road were confirmed with his addition to the organization's March 3, 2008 inaugural Sengoku show. Nick was scheduled to face Fabricio Monteiro in his debut.[7] He won this debut against Monteiro via three-round unanimous decision.[1]

He is still currently competing in World Victory Road with his last two fights being losses to Dan Hornbuckle and Taisuke Okuno both by way of Knockout.

On February 25, 2009 in a radio interview, Thompson confirmed that he has signed on with California based Mixed Martial Arts promotion Strikeforce. Thomson stated in his interview that he could be fighting as early as April 11, 2009.[8]

Shine Fights

Nick signed a multi-fight deal with upstart, Ohio and Florida based promotion, Shine Fights. Before even making his debut, he was requested to a new deal.[9]
