I think Alves is very healthy mentally right now and will fight for the title again. This is a tough fight but I think Alves can finish it.

Alves seems predictable his last few fights and that combined with his short reach makes me think Kampmann will take this. Kampmann is pretty well rounded.

This is a very tough fight to call, a great match up for us fans.

I'd say Alves takes this via split decision if he comes in fresh, peppering Kampmann with leg kicks and fully utilizing the octagon.

I think this will be a good battle. I see it being close in till Alves catches Kampman with something big possibly while having Kampman up against the cage. Once Kampman's hurt I think Alves sworms on him and finishes the fight likely in the second round.

I really don't know what's gonna happen.

I think Alves is gonna **** him up with kicks but I think Kampmann will eat a few and decide to take it to the ground, on the other hand Kampmann has some of the worst fighter IQ out there, K1 Kampmann vs. Daley, ADCC Kampmann vs. Shields and he was rocked by Diego Sanchez.

So I'm just gonna hope Alves catches him and ends him violently.

Not a great matchup for Kampmann. He likes to counter guys and reset a lot and you need to press Thiago constantly so that he shuts down his offense. Not unwinnable by any means but stylistically the striking advantage is for Thiago so Kampmann will probably need to get some takedowns.

Kampmann hasn't looked good against aggressive fighters. I think Alves is going to control this fight.

Does anybody know why this isn't a 5 round fight? Didn't Dana say all main events are 5 rounds? Didn't he also say they messed up by not making Ellenberger vs Sanchez 5 rounds? I dont understand the picking and choosing for 3 round versus 5 round main events.
