I agree but idk how many kicks we will see if Thiago doesn't want to get takendown.

And if this turns into a boxing match the advantage might go to Koscheck IMO.

This is a great test for Alves, since Koscheck posesses a similiar, albeit less intense skill-set as Georges. If Alves is able to nullify GnP with his BJJ, I could see him being a legitimate contender. I think GSP has some of the best GnP out there, and can quickly knock someone out with it. Something that seems kind of rare nowadays with how serious people have gotten with BJJ training. I'm really eager to see how Alves does on his back against a man like Koscheck, who has become relatively freakish in his training.

Already decided who I think will win. Damn, I'm such a homer. I think Kos wins a UD regardless of my obvious bias.

Kos all day - any day


Not to mention Kos trains with Fitch who whipped Alves.

The one thing Kos has over most WW is speed. I really don't see how anyone thinks this will go any differently than Kos vs. Lytle. Lytle actually has a better ground game than Alves so it was a little more dangerous to take him down but Kos was relentless with his takedowns.

Kos isn't going to chance it and bang with Alves. That would be a stupid move and Kos isn't a stupid fighter.

If Alves makes weight... Kos will grind out the UD.

If Alves doesnt make weight, and Kos accepts the bout at a higher catchweight, Alves by KO.

you're aware that either way Alves is going to rehydrate and walk in the octagon at the same weight right?

Not that Alves will miss weight again.
