UFC 121: Diego Sanchez vs Paulo Thiago

diego-sanchez

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]

Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez
Jake Shields vs Martin Kampmann
Paul Taylor vs Sam Stout
Court McGee vs Ryan Jensen
Patrick Côté vs Tom Lawlor

    UGC 121 is looking like a real good card. On paper, I am please with the upcoming cards that the UFC is putting together. Hopefully the fighters do their part and we get so see some good fights. I like Diego in this one. The Shields vs Martin fight is gonna be a great one. Martin has an underrated jiu jitsu/ground game. Shield's game is without a doubt better but the problem is gonna be that Maritn's stand-up is far superior to Sheild's standup and the I think that Shield's ground game is only somewhat better.

    I think he should stay at 155 as well, he could get his ass beat by BJ again but he'll kick Kenny's ass….again.

    He probably should stay at 155..but for some reason, most guys that drop are then big at the weight class-he does not seem powerful at 155. He will be a gate keeper at either weight class.

    You'd think somebody pretending to be me could think of something more clever and funnier to say.

    Oswald. Now that you said that, you know they'll say you love cock or want to fuck Mayhem or something equally gay.

    Funny thing is if he has that much time to come up with something and this the lame shit he thinks of, just imagine how dull witted he is in person.
