Paulo Thiago vs. Johny Hendricks at UFC on Versus 3 in Louisville, Kentucky

Brazilian submission wizard, Paulo Thiago will meet the heavy handed wrestler, Johny Hendricks in a welterweight battle at UFC on Versus 3 in Louisville, Kentucky on March 3rd, 2011.

Thiago is in desperate need of a win in this one after losing back-to-back fights to Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann. Prior to this dry run he stopped Josh Koscheck and Mike Swick inside the distance.

Hendricks is looking to bounce back from his first mixed martial arts loss, losing via unanimous decision to Rick Story just last month. Prior to that he’d defeated the likes of TUF 7 winner, Amir Sadollah.
