Thales Leites

...is a bad motherf***er...

What do you guys think about this guy? I think he'll be a top contender if not already, I just watched his fight against Martin Kampmann and damn he is one tough son of a bitch, he was getting obliterated on the stand-up but that was 2 years and I think he's slightly improved. His BJJ sick is just flat out sick though.

To me, he's similar to Nog, tough as nails. Kampmann beat the shit out of him and almost knocked him out several times during that fight and he stood right back up almost everytime. Can't wait to see his next fight

i think he gets punched in the face alot

tough guy for sure...kinda overrated jitz, for a world champion, marquart took him from mount to half guard while rocked, and he couldn't keep kampmann down...

however, he's exciting, therefore i like him. his fight w/ kampmann was really fun to watch as was his fight w/ marquart

I am biased against Lietes as Marquardt is my favorite UFC MW and I am pissed he "lost" that matchup. Maybe after Nate gets a rematch and properly beats him down I wont dislike him so much.

He dropped Marquardt.

Had insane fights with both Marquardt and Kampmann.

He's alright, but I don't think he'll ever be Champion in a division with A.Silva/Okami/Maia/Bisping/Marquardt/etc.

Well I think he's in a tough division seeing as his best aspect of MMA is Jiu Jitsu, you have guys like Maia and Palhares in the division already who I think would both beat Thales Leites.

He is going to struggle also against guys with good standup and decent takedown defence, as Thales standup is mediocre.

I agree with JT42, Marquardt would eat him in a rematch, those point deductions are annoying, but fair from what I remember. So Nate can't complain, it's just a shame when a fighter loses in that way.

Leites is a good fighter and has a ton of heart no doubt. I don't see him as a top guy but he's way better than a gatekeeper. There is just something missing and I can't figure out what it is. he has won his last 5 fights so he's doing something right.

Thales Leites has the tools to be champion. He's been one of the guys that I've been watching in the MW division. I don't really know why many hate him because of the Marquardt fight. It wasn't Thales' fault that Nate cheated.

and Thales was working Nate over until that first illegal blow.

Thales is legit and is severly under rated on this forum while dudes like Palharres are extremely over rated.

I strongly disagree about Palhares being overrated on this board, but that's another topic.

I wouldn't mind an Okami vs Leites fight.
