The obvious difference is their wrestling... Koscheck is a much better wrestler than Diego and probably won't have much trouble taking Alves down. Diego would have a much tougher time




What a stud

I'm voting Kos on this one. For some reason I don't see him getting caught like Hughes or Karo, and I think he's smart enough to put together a good plan and execute it. I'll be kinda surprised if Alves gets to spend much time on his feet...

Kosh via UD and a lot of ground and pound. Lytle was winning the fight against Alves until that cut and look what Kosh did to his face!

Koscheck is going to tool him whether Alves makes weight or not . I wouldn't be surprised if in R3, Alves gets frustrated from being on his back for the entire fight and starts swinging for the fences and gets caught.

This is still going to be a hell of a fight! Kos or Alves has a great shot vs GSP. I love Alves, but Kos is my boy.

This shit is getting old. NO matter the damn card you get pumped up for, for like three months some asshole is always getting hurt never fells. Something needs to be done. A little more resposibilty or something. I say whoever drops out of there fight for whatever reason is out of competition for a few months. Probably a little harsh and im just blowin smoke, but im really sick of this crap happening. That or knock ten bucks off the ppv costs or something

You can't punish guys for injuries. The training for MMA is so brutal, injuries are inevitable. It is frustrating but a fact of life for MMA competitors (and fans). If it happens repeatedly to someone or you think they are faking/exaggerating injuries then the promoter has to act but that obviously isn't the case here.
