Thiago's some character. Extremely overrated with his best victories over Jardine and Houston Alexander.
"I took that fight in Sweden on short notice after [Antonio Rogerio Nogueira] became injured," he said. "Prior to that, I was idle for over one year due to a suspension. I don't think I was at 100 percent. Not only that, but I hurt my ribs five days before I boarded the plan to Sweden, so I didn't have the option to take the fight to the ground. I don't like to make excuses, but it's what happened nonetheless."
"I don't like to make excuses but i'll make a few anyway." All this coming from a guy who humiliated his opponent in Vera (by playing drums on his back etc.) while being on the juice.
He's the type of guy i want to see win a few, just to see him get outclassed by a top guy.
