It appears that Paulo Thiago will get another chance in UFC despite being on the Losing Streak Of Doom. Despite having lost 2 in a row, Thiago's manager recently told the TATAME that Thiago has actually been given a 4-fight extension by UFC. No word on when he'll fight again.

He's fun to watch and his skills are legit. Despite his recent losses, he is still worthy of a roster spot in the UFC.

As he should. Hes 3-3 in the UFC all fights against top guys in the division except for Volkman.

Good call. He was thrown to wolves immediately when he entered the UFC. That has to be rough on any fighter. Give him some low-level guys to boost his confidence, and allow him to get back into the swing of things.

The guy has fought top notch competition since day one....let him take a slump in competition to prove he has what it takes and let him build back up to the spotlight.

Good to see Paulo get another chance. As everyone said he has fought legit contenders in the UFC and is always entertaining. If he puts a couple of wins together it would be interesting to see a rematch with Kos (after he gets handled by GSP).
