UFC 142: Paulo Thiago vs Mike Pyle in the works for Jan. 14 in Rio   [View Full Version]

Brazilian supercop Paulo Thiago is expected to face off against Mike Pyle when the promotion returns to Rio de Janeiro for UFC 142, currently scheduled for the HSBC Arena on Jan. 14, 2012.

Tatame.com first reported the 170-pound match-up earlier today.

Thiago (14-3) was able to get back into the win column with a unanimous decision nod over David Mitchell at UFC 134 back in August, returning him to good standing after consecutive losses to Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann.

Does a win over Pyle put him back "in the mix?"

No it doesn't put him "back in the mix" even if he wins. Paulo Thiago coming off a win over a relatively unknown opponent and Mike Pyle lost to a upcoming fighter (Rory Macdonald).

This will be a good fight though!

I like the fight, both seem somewhat similar and equal.

Same here. It's a good match up to make. I've got Thiago winning.

I give Thiago the edge in JJ and striking, but Pyle the edge in wrestling and brute strength.

Leaning towards Thiago, though.

Mike Pyle's gonna dominate with the better wrestling imo.
