Paulo Thiago is one of the only fighter to conquer bonus for the best fight, best knockout and best submission of the night in the UFC, and another one might come his way. Matched-up to confront Siyar Bahadurzada on April 14, in Sweden, Paulo trains hard the gentle art.

“We’re going for the best fight of the night... Jiu-Jitsu on the go”, bets his coach, Ataide Junior, while talking to TATAME, showing confidence in his student’s hands in case he needs to stand-up against the Afghan.

“If he lands that hand, the guy goes down. If it’s about having heavy hands, I believe in Paulo’s. he gets pissed when he gets hit… This week he almost killed two guys here at the gym, knocked out a kid using shin protector (laughs)”.
