UFC 121 Results: Diego Sanchez Defeats Paulo Thiago
By my count, the third round was for all the marbles and that looked to be bad news for Thiago, who was breathing MUCH harder than Sanchez as the two men came out to decide matters.
In the end, that's exactly what proved decisive.
The Brazilian was drained from the end of the first stanza on and the Nightmare capitalized by swarming all over his adversary for the last 10 minutes of the contest. There was a momentary ray of light with about 100 seconds left when Thiago freed himself from Diego's grasp before tripping and catching Sanchez with a vicious upkick off his back.
Then a D'Arce choke put the American in slight danger, but—ultimately—it was the constant pressure and accurate aggression that carried the three rounds for Sanchez.
Diego Sanchez defeats Paulo Thiago by unanimous decision (30-26, 29-28, 29-28).
Whoa, 30-26?!?!? Is Cecil Peoples in the house? Good lord.
