Yoshida is talented but you all are dreaming if you think hes going to touch a title shot without really working his way through the division. The Kos fight was huge for him but now hes probably gonna get a guy whose looking to fight for a spot in the UFC since I dont see anyone else taking a fight against him on semi short notice(hes one of those dudes whose dangerous and has no name recognition in the states).

Huge oppurtunity for Kos, Yoshida basically gets set back a few fights on his standing in the division.

Well, they were going to give Yoshida guys like Kos and Karo, but those aren't going to happen yet. He'll keep moving up the ranks.

I would go for Thiago on this one. Hes stronger and has a good overall set of skills.

OFC I'd be rooting for him because hes the underdog & I dont really like kos in general.

Not saying he doesnt deserve to fight those guys but we all know that being the most talented cat doesnt necessarily get you the title shots these days.

Hard choice given the situation. I'll still go with KOS though, win by decision.

I wanted to see this fight so badly. I really thought Sanchez would have beat Alves.

I'm picking Alves. And it doesn't make much sense because I'm sure Koscheck can get Alves down. And honestly I think Koscheck has better hands then Alves.

Thiago has great kicks and knees but his hands aren't special.

However I think Alves will catch Koscheck who has been rocked a couple times and put him away.

I think that Thiago Alves is going to take this. I would rather see Koscheck get smashed by him, so this is good news to me.
