Thiago Tavares will face Michihiro Omigawa on Jan. 23 at the next UFC Fight Night.

"I think he is a good opponent," said the Brazilian lightweight. "I think the guys from UFC are trying to build my name again because I'm coming off a loss. That's why they didn't give me a top opponent. Not disrespecting him -- he is a good athlete, fought at the Olympics and in big MMA organizations. He is a middle-level fighter, not top, but I'm training to face him like it is a title shot. Every single fight is the most important fight of my life."

Omigawa vs. Wiman was a war. Tavares is one of my favorite fighters and I think he has more ways to win this one and is coming off a loss so it will be a bad night for Omigawa
