Brazilian welterweight Paulo Thiago says in an interview with Tatame.com, that he will be fighting, South Korean fighter Dong ‘Stun Gun’ Hyun Kim, at the UFC on FUEL TV 6 show in Asia.
“(Kim’s) a tough guy with many skills. He’s tall, is great at Judo, has good takedowns. He’s a complete fighter. He lost to Demian because for bad luck. Now I have this confrontation ahead of me. I’ve watched his tapes and I always thought he was dangerous. Now I’ll watch it carefully and looking for his flaws and a way to win this fight”.
“I haven’t analyzed him, I just heard I’m fighting him. It’s a guy who’s hard to fight against. He’s a tall guy for this division, he has a good reach and goes for it, he’s good at striking and also on the floor. I’ll have to take a better look at him, see what he does wrong and find a way that lead me to the win”.
Thiago adds that he’s been trying to get a spot at the upcoming UFC 153 card in Brazil, but failed to do so.
Thiago has earned a series of loss in his last UFC bouts. He suffered a 42-second knockout loss at the hands of Siyar Bahadurzada at UFC Sweden,last April. His last win was at last year’s UFC 134, where he earned a decision victory over David Mitchell.
