Nick Thompson vs. Eduardo Pamplona Added to Shine 3

Nick "The Goat" Thompson will look to end a two-fight losing streak against M-1 Challenge standout Eduardo Pamplona at the Shine Fights 3 pay-per-view event on May 15 in Fayetteville, N.C.

Pamplona (12-2) out of Brazil is currently riding a string of seven straight wins, three last year with M-1 Challenge. His last loss was in February 2007 in a superfight against Robbie Lawler in the IFL.

Thompson (38-12-1)'s career took a hit last summer when he suffered back-to-back losses to Tim Kennedy and Dan Hornbuckle in Strikeforce and Sengoku, respectively. Thompson holds wins against Paul Daley, Eddie Alvarez, Chris Wilson and Josh Neer.

Shine Fights 3 is headlined by Ricardo Mayorga facing Din Thomas and also includes Murilo "Ninja" Rua against Falaniko Vitale.
