Arena Jaragua


Following wins over Josh Koscheck, Jacob Volkmann, and Mike Swick, Paulo Thiago was considered one of the top prospects in the UFC’s welterweight division. Things have changed over the last couple years, losing four out his last five fights, and now likely fighting for his UFC roster spot. Most recently, Thiago lost a unanimous decision to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC on Fuel TV 6.

UFC newcomer, Michel Richard dos Prazeres remains perfect in his mixed martial arts career, winning his first sixteen bouts as a professional. Even though he began fighting in October of 2000, Dos Prazeres has only fought four times since 2008. Eight of his sixteen victories have come by way of submission.
