Back to victories after defeating Manny Gamburyan at UFC 94, Thiago Tavares was reportedly scheduled to face Manny Gamburyan at TUF 9 Finale, at June 20th, but the ATT fighter won’t be able to fight. According to his manager, Alex Davis, Tavares suffered an elbow injury and won’t have time to recover for the fight. Stay tuned on TATAME.com for more news on Thiago’s injury.


Disappointing young brazilian fighters keep pulling out of fights with Melvin.

Hopefully the UFC will get someone else with even a pinch of BJJ talent to fight Melvin, so he'll get subbed again and go away forever.

I used to almost be a fan of Melvin's too. Yeah he was a prick, but his KO of Rick Davis was nasty and stopping anyone via body punch (yes, even Tubby Ruediger) is impressive.

Melvin is fucked now, he's fighting Gleison Tibau instead:

Tibau is going to win I will say however that Tibau takes way too many shots to the face and Melvin hits hard so he better cover up and get that takedown.
