After doing a great fight against Kurt Pellegrino at UFC 88, getting the fight of the night bonus, but being defeated by unanimous decision, Thiago Tavares already knows when he’ll be back to the octagon. Eyeing a victory in the octagon, sources had confirmed that the Minotauro Team fighter will be on the UFC 93 card, that happens at MGM Grand Arena, at Las Vegas, USA, at January 31st. As we reported earlier, the same event will put Lyoto Machida to face Thiago Silva, on the rescheduled fight from UFC 89.

I'm glad the ufc is keeping tavares around, i still think he has potential to be an impact player in the lw division. he has hit a little bump in the road but he is still young and has the talent to bounce back.

tavares is a good fighter who has a bright future im glad the ufc didnt let him go, I though for sure he would be gone after the loss to pellegrino. they prolly kept him around cuz hes always exciting whether he wins or losses.

His last two fights, even though he lost, were both official FOTN. He is not going anywhere.

Well Wiman knocked him out cold, so I don't know how you can say he should have won that one.

I think prozacnation1978 means that he was expected to win both fights. He was the favourite both times.
