no one is saying he's a world beater, just a scrappy guy who puts on awesome fights.

Yea, no one is saying he is elite. He has found his game as of late and puts on good fights.

People think saying he beats Alves is saying a lot. Alves is a name of 5 years ago. Alves lives off his name still.

meh Alves is coming off a long lay over and honestly wasn't looking all that impressive in his bouts before the lay off. He looked decent in the Kampmann fight but has not looked like a killer since fighting Kos back in 2008. To be honest I expect Brown to continue his surge here the guy is good in all areas and as long as fighters have holes he can continue to capitalize on them or beat them through pure toughness. Maybe I will be shocked but if Alves is gonna make one last run towards the top of the division its do or die time.

I'm done doubting Matt Brown. He was supposed to lose his last four and just kept kicking ass.

If Brown fights like he did in his last bout then he can probably beat Alves.

Pretty easily I'd say. Alves folds when guys pressure him.

this card is looking good so far with this fight and Joe Lauzon's potential return..... i'm glad i get to go to it!

not only is it the first show on the new Fox Sport 1, it the day they launch Fox Sports 1; they need to put on a barn burner. every match should be like Bermudez v Grice or better!
