Who is Paulo Thiago (10-0)? That’s a question a lot of fans are wondering. Not much is known about Thiago outside of Brazil other than he is getting the opportunity that few others making their UFC debut receive. On February 21st at the O2 arena in London at UFC 95 he will face off against number four ranked welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (12-3).
Koscheck has faced the top of the food chain as far as UFC welterweights go, having wins over Chris Lytle, Dustin Hazelett and Diego Sanchez. He has also taken GSP and Thiago Alves, both of whom are considered by many to be the top two fighters in the division, to decision. Although Koscheck lost both fights, he showed a lot of heart and tenacity proving that even the best in the world could not stop him.
