“I think he is very technical, a very good fighter. He was ranked #14 at one point and I think he’s very good,” Giagos told MMA Junkie and other reporters at the UFC Wednesday on ESPN Media Day 38. “I think it’s a great matchup. . He fought tough guys, I fought tough guys. He’s 4-4 in the UFC, I’m 5-5, so I think the UFC did a great job in this fight. I knew I would fight him at some point because I fought on the same map as him in the RFA when he fought for the title.

“And Dana White was there on his show and he wasn’t signed. I wasn’t signed, but I feel like Dana White made a bigger impression on me. I thought I would fight him for the title. At one point I was an RFA title holder, but I thought I would get that chance again against Thiago. So I knew that at some point I was going to fight him, so the time was right. I really enjoy this match and I just think that stylistically it’s a great fight for me.”
