lol what? great wrestling? his wrestling is probably below average for the division given whose there.

he couldn't even take fat Luigi Fioravanti down....and when he does take people down (Fitch), they get right back up...

he's going to have a hard time taking Alves down IMO

I got Sanchez winning this one. I think he'll be quicker on his feet and more dangerous on the ground if it goes there.

Not making weight and still fighting is total bullshit, you should not have a chance to get the W.

It's gonna be comical to see how much bigger Alves is than Diego.

Kamikaze is now 5-0. Watch his most recent fight here.

Alves will win this one 70%

Alves is huge for a welterweight. Even though Matt Hughes wasnt near a big or stong as he use to be. He is still stronger than Diego, and Matt Hughes was out powered by Alves. The only way Diego will get the takedown is if it is a quick explosive takedown. Those wont happen very often. The only way Diego will win is by submission. I believe Alves will get the TKO on Diego. Should be an awesome fight though... Cant wait for this one....

I hope he's improved his wrestling because Alves is one big dude! I can see Diego winning by UD though.
