I know it's been said before but Paulo Thiago is getting the roughest UFC path I've ever seen. He comes right in to the UFC and gets back to back to back fights against top 10 guys. Either they really dislike him or they really respect him. I have to say after the Kos fight I thought maybe he was a fluke, but after the Fitch fight he looks pretty legit. I don't think he'll beat Alves, but I think he's def got the skills and the heart to be in the top 10.
