UFC Paulo Thiago

Remember when welterweight Paulo Thiago joined the UFC with a perfect 10-0 record then proceeded to TKO former top contender Josh Koscheck in his big league debut and everyone thought Thiago could contend for the title sooner rather than later?

Yeah, about that…

Fast forward nearly six years and Thiago now finds himself in the unemployment line. According to the Brazilian website Globo, Thiago has been cut by the UFC.

After his upset special over Koscheck, Thiago went on to lose eight of his next twelve tangos, including three straight. And we all know what running the reverse trifecta in the UFC typically means.

The 33-year-old was most recently seen last month dropping a unanimous decision to Sean Spencer.
