Up-and-coming UFC welterweight Paulo Thiago talks to Tatame.com about his place in the 170-pound weight class. While many of the division's top fighters are arguing over who should be the next man to challenge current champion Georges St. Pierre, Thiago is content to work his way up the ladder and eliminate any doubts about becoming the next number one contender.

3-1 in the UFC w/ wins over Kos and Swick is pretty nice. It's too bad most of the higher contenders already have fights lined up, I wouldn't mind seeing Thiago against Kampmann once he returns from his injury.

Paulo Thiago gets utterly destroyed for two rounds, outstruck handily and brutally GnPed, and then suddenly head kicks Georges St. Pierre in a knockout of the year. That's the sort of stuff that I expect from Paulo Thiago - who hardly ever looks good but somehow wins.

Paulo Thiago is a top ten welterweight, and with the lack of new blood to match up against Georges St. Pierre, he probably is not very far from challenging for a title. Another big win might do it.

how are you gonna become champ when you lose to the consensus #2 fighter in the world.....they might give Thiago a shot based on him not fighting GSP before, but IMO if you can't beat Fitch, you shouldn't be fighting GSP.

He will beat Fitch. He is getting better and better with every fight and gaining more strength. Give it some time. I guarantee they will rematch and im willing to AV bet on it when it happens.

I think Paulo vs Kampmann would be a good fight. Somewhat equal in skills. Solid

I agree with Paulo but he is running out of top guys to beat before he is number 1. Fitch, and Alves are the only 2 i put above him.
