Graison Tibau comes from Nova Uniao camp. Where fighters Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro and Thales Leites, and others also train. He's a submission expert with a pretty solid ground game. He's fought for smaller organizations all over. This is his 1st fight on one of the bigger shows. He should be a tough test for Diaz, but I gotta go with Diaz on this one, he's fought and beat better competition.
This is a good sign though with the UFC signing more Nova Uniao fighters. Hopefully this means we'll see "Shaolin" in the UFC LW division sometime in the near future.
