This isn't correct in my book.

He isn't a bigger stronger Erick Silva.

Erick Silva doesn't have T-Rex arms and has a much more diverse striking game. Erick Silva is also much more athletic with more speed. His BJJ game is also better.

Alves was one of the more overrated fighters. He had very good leg kicks. But his hands weren't that impressive. His BJJ was never that impressive. And he gassed often when fights were tough.
