Thiago Alves returns vs Matt Brown, Ufc on FS1 (Aug 17, Boston)

It seems like forever ago, Alves last fought, hopefully this is a good scrap! Early edge to Brown based on momentum, hopefully the pitbull of old shows up!

"The UFC's much-discussed debut card on the soon-to-be launched FOX Sports 1 channel appears to have its first fight.

Welterweights Matt Brown (17-11) and Thiago Alves (19-9) have verbally agreed to fight on the Aug. 17 card in Boston, sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed with MMAFighting.com Saturday. The fighters have yet to sign bout agreements, according to those same sources.

It is unclear at this time whether the fight will take place on the main card, however, it's important to note that Brown's last two fights have aired on FOX.

The 32-year-old Brown has dramatically turned his career around as of late, winning his last five fights in a row after losing four of five fights. During his current streak, which he extended at UFC on FOX 7 against Jordan Mein, he has finished his opponent in four of five fights.

This would mark Alves' first fight since March 2012 when he lost via third-round submission to Martin Kampmann in Australia. Since then, "The Pitbull" has battled injuries, undergoing multiple surgeries due to a torn pectoral muscle and then an injured PCL and ACL. The American Top Team veteran is 4-4 in his last eight fights.

FOX's Speed channel will be converted into FOX Sports 1 on Aug. 17, the same day as this event. The new channel, which will be available in over 80 million from the get-go, will be the new home of "The Ultimate Fighter," UFC Fight Nights, "UFC Tonight" and other UFC-related programming."

I think this is a fight that Brown definitely needs to get to the ground.

Alves is the crisper striker, but he'll be coming off a year and a half layoff at that point, multiple surgeries, and Brown has been a savage lately. Brown via ud.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

Really think so?

Brown is a rangy guy. Alves isn't at all. Alves does have nice kicks, but his hands fall well short of his kicks. I think he gets overrated as a striker really. How long has he been out?

His kicks will be negated if Brown is pushing the pace like he does. I think Brown has much better hands.

Alves has been out for some times so that is definitely something to consider. But if Alves comes in looking sharp, I think he will destroy Brown standing. The layoff could be a big thing though and Brown is on a pretty good run right now so I could very well end up eating my words.

Just haven't been that impressed with Alves. He hasn't had a relevant win since 2008. He did beat the crap out of Kampmann before he lost...but Kampmann gets beat up all the time.

Would be nice to see 2008 Alves back. But I am highly doubt it. His lack of length hurts him these days.
