Sherdoug.

I thought Mitchell was going to be coming into his UFC debut, but just fumbled and he's got a tough fight here with Paulo.

My guess is the loser wont have a job after this fight unless they have an amazing fight. Both havent fought in a while, Mitchell since 9/2010 and Paulo 10/2010.

Prolly take Paulo, it would seem he has the better stand up and wrestling and maybe ground to hang with Mitchell and his 9 sub wins.

I can't hate on Thiago for his losses. He lost against quality competition, and he will probably run through Mitchell.
