    Can't think of anyone in the UFC who has faced 3 top 5 guys in the world in his first 3 fights.

    Rampage, Anderson, etc - all got cans when they came over..


    Paulo Thiago has balls.

    Anderson got Rich as a second fight, Rampage got chuck after eastman..... :hsugh:
    I think you mean as a first fight, not the first 3 fights.

    Anderson and Rampage both got fed a can in their first fight.


    Paulo Thiago got Koschek, Fitch and now Alves.

    No one in UFC history has had that kind of introduction to the UFC.

    word son, Paulos got some serious cajones. Anyone know his background? He's been looking good for a guy no one's really heard of before, especially considering his opponents.

    Edit: Ohhh shit no wonder he isn't afraid of shit, he's a member of BOPE, which is a crazy ass special forces unit in Brazil. There's a movie about them called Tropa De Elite, if you haven't seen it go check it out, its an awesome movie.

    Besides being a part of a police organization that makes SWAT look like child's play nothing much. He looks angry as hell but I guess you got to be when your job is to scour the favelas all day everyday.

    They were fucken champions who had fought for hundreds of years, coming to fight other dudes that were at the same level as them, Paulo is a random dude with little fighting experience fighting guys that are on a whole 'nother level than him, or so you would expect.

    Big difference.
