Paulo Thiago Gets New Four-Fight Deal, Shocks Fans And Critics

To the surprise of many, the UFC has opted to continue employing longtime welterweight fighter Paulo Thiago.

According to reports coming out of Brazil, the special forces officer has inked a new four-fight deal that will keep him in action for the foreseeable future.

The new deal comes as a shock to many, considering the welterweights recent 2-6 skid inside the Octagon.

Thiago himself touched on his re-up with,“I was cool, but anxious because all of the recent cuts they did. I wasn’t that tense. Whatever they decided, I would be cool.”

No word on when we can expect to see Thiago back in action.
