If you missed Saturday’s UFC 121 main event, here’s your chance to watch the Brock Lesnar vs Cain Velasquez highlights.
UFC welterweight, Paulo Thiago hopes to remain with the UFC despite losing his last two fights inside the octagon. Paulo picked up the “Fight of the Night” bonus award on Saturday night at UFC 121.
“What saved me was the bonus for the best fight of the evening… I think that he’s got a chance of coming back. He did a great first round, but then he started to decrease his performance, and Diego started to improve.”
“We’ll come back to Brasilia to get the team together, watch the fight again and to understand what happened… We can’t understand, Paulo is doing great on the trainings and can’t give it all during the fight. The game plan was not to go to the floor on the bottom and attack a lot while standing up, but we couldn’t do it”.
“If Ultimate gives him another shot, it might be on an undercard fight. Since he joined (UFC) he’s only fought really tough guys, but I think they’ll give him another chance. They usually renew before the last fight on the contract, so we’ll see what they’ll do.”

UFC President, Dana White has suggested that former Strikeforce and EliteXC champion, Jake Shields will still get his title shot despite running out of gas against Martin Kampmann last night at UFC 121 in Anaheim, California.
“I think no less of him today than I did yesterday. No matter how much weight he cut and whatever he did, that’s his fault. That’s his stupidity. He’s been in the game for a long time, so I don’t like to use any of that stuff, but the reality is I do know what he did, and I know he won’t make those dumb mistakes next time.”
“I know who he fought tonight. He fought a real guy tonight, and he overcame it. You don’t even have to fight at this level to know that when you’re looking at that clock, and there’s still three minutes left on it, and you’re in the second round, and you make it through the fight and you win it, it says something about you.”
“It was a tough fight for Jake coming in, and no matter where Jake’s fought and what he’s done and who he’s beat and what he’s accomplished, it’s tough coming into the UFC your first time. He beat a tough guy tonight, and he got his first win under his belt.”
