Thiago Tavares to take on Michihiro Omigawa

Sherdog.com is reporting that Thiago Taveres will be fighting Michihiro Omigawa at UFC Fight Night 12. The match-up will take place on January 23, 2008.

Even though Tavares is preparing for Omigawa, Tavares clearly hasn’t forgotten his last fight which was a decision loss to Tyson Griffin. Tavares feels he won the fight:

“You have no idea what I’ve being going through since that fight,” Tavares said. “Plus the fact I didn’t think I lost.”

I was actually in attendance for Tavares – Griffin and while the fight was close, it was clear that Griffin won the match-up. Losing to Griffin will not set Tavares back that much, and he is a very exciting fighter. Should Tavares defeat Omigawa (which he should do), Tavares will definitely be in position to take on another top-level lightweight.

    Great site, I’m always checking it out for news however…”it was clear that Griffin won the match-up”?? Come on! Thiago won that match, no doubt in my mind.

  • I thought the fight was good, but I thought Griffin won – although nowhere near as convincing as the judges have it. Tavares is real goodthough.
