Paulo Thiago Is Not Ready For A Title Shot

↵

On the right time the UFC will give me the chance. I’m getting experience, feeling more comfortable. I’m not ready yet.

St. Pierre is very smart, it’s going to be a chess game. Who gets calmer to annul the game of the other, takes it. He works a lot of takedown defense, the ground, the guard... You have to exchange with him, be aggressive. There are a lot of ways to prepare.

- Rising UFC welterweight star Paulo Thiago discusses a future title shot.

↵

Since joining the UFC Thiago fought one of the toughest schedules I've ever seen for a non-champion.  In his four fights in the UFC he has fought the #2 ranked welterweight Jon Fitch, #4 ranked Josh Koscheck and #8 ranked Mike Swick in addition to the very tough Jacob Volkmann.  Most impressive is that he has gone 3-1 in these fights, proving that he is a top level welterweight.
