Alves vs Sanchez moved to UFC90 in Chicago

- ALVES VS SANCHEZ MOVED TO UFC 90 IN CHICAGO
Monday, July 21, 2008 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



After first breaking the news that top welterweights Thiago “Pitbull” Alves and Diego Sanchez would meet at UFC 89 in Birmingham, England, MMAWeekly.com has just learned that the fight will instead take place on the as of yet unannounced card for UFC 90 set to take place in Chicago, Ill.

MMAWeekly.com confirmed the change with sources close to the fight. UFC president Dana White, in speaking to the Chicago Sun Times on Monday, announced an Oct. 25 date in confirming UFC 90 for the Allstate Arena in Chicago. He did not confirm any bouts for the event.

UFC 90 follows one week after the UFC 89 show in England. UFC 89 is currently still rumored to be a free show on Spike TV, but again, there is no confirmation for that yet from the UFC.

Alves and Sanchez were set to be part of the co-main event for UFC 89, but the promotion decided to push up the light heavyweight bout between Thiago Silva and Lyoto Machida as the other headliner behind the main event featuring Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben.

It is now believed that the Alves vs. Sanchez fight will be part of the main event set up for the card in Chicago for UFC 90, but no other fights have been rumored or announced as of yet.

Good co-main event for the first trip to Chi-Town.

This is the fight that will send Diego down to 155. Thiago is too big and strong and will be too much for Diego. Diego will be game but in the end not have enough.

I agree, GSP and Alves are big WW, they can pass for MW. This is the fight that will tell if Alves is ready to be a contender, I hope he makes weight.

I agree with jdun11 that Thiago will be too big, strong, and much, however I don't think he will be game and I am not sure if Diego will go down to 155 because he doesn't want to cut weight.

I sort of agree with you, but I can never count Diego out. He could catch Alves with one of his sneaky hooks or sub him but if I had to bet my house on it, I'd be betting on Alves.

It's still up in the air, depending on what happens UFC 89 to weeks before UFC 90.

The only thing stopping Diego from winning this fight is Thiagos strength and takedown defense. I'm not sure if he will be able to manage a win which disappoints me. Although I won't count Diego out, his conditioning is excellent, his pace is overwhelming, and his chin is made of granite. I don't see Thiago knocking Diego out.

This should be good.
