I've always like Alves. He did really good for his first fight in the UFC against Spencer, until he lost haha. The Noble fight was a good slugfest and he came back to win after getting stunned (wonder why they never brought Noble back after that?)...I agree he is exciting, he seems young I dunno how old he is but I also agree that he will be a force in a few years.

Alves is in my top favorites list. I didn't know what to think when the rumor was going around that he was going to fight Diego cause I'd hate to pick either one to lose. I think Alves will be in the top 5 WW in UFC pretty soon.

Swick's not that great of a striker, and throws wild as hell punches, too.

If ALves loses to Lytle, then it'll be a nice learning experience. I don't know, I think Alves will pull off the decision, but Lytle has a good shot at beating him. Dude is tough as hell, is a good striker, is impossible to finish, and has a good ground game. Lytle doesn't get the credit he deserves, but that's another thread.
Swick is far from a great striker but he is a quick striker which is something that guys who throw heavy but sloppy punches like Alves seem to have trouble with.

I think Alves has a lot of potential and 2 years down the road I think he could be a top of the line or at least top 10 WW. But he could also become a victim of the loaded WW divison. I mean you got all the guys in the UFC then there is Shields, and Condit who I think both have brighter futures than Alves.

But he is one of the most dangerous guys at 170 with his power and his nasty leg kicks.
