Paulo Thiago will be participating in his second UFC event after defeating Josh Koschech via a first round knockout. The undefeated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specialist is now 1-0 in the UFC and holds an overall MMA record of 11 wins, 0 losses.
UFC 100 is scheduled to take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The rumored main event is set to headline a UFC heavyweight unification title match between Frank Mir and Brock Lesnar.
