UFC 121: Diego Sanchez vs Paulo Thiago

Welterweights Diego Sanchez and Paulo Thiago are set to face off at UFC 121 on Oct. 23 at Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Paulo Thiago:

“He’s a tough fighter, and he’s on the same situation as me, coming from a loss… It’ll be a tough fight, we both want to keep our jobs … Diego is a real warrior, he doesn’t give up and he’s also really tough on the ground. Besides his aggressiveness, he’s also very technical on the ground, he trained for a long time with Saulo and Xande Ribeiro, and he’s left-handed. To train with left-handed is always a hard thing, we’ve studied his game and set a strategy” [Tatame]
