I was absolutly gutted when I found out Diego was injured. Diego vs Alves was just such a great matchup, I have'nt been that excited for a fight simply because of the fighters styles for a while. Although i'm dissappointed Koscheck is a good replacement.
Only problem I really see here is GSP beat Koscheck not that long ago, Diego or Alves would have been a much better fight than GSP Koscheck 2. They should have waited at least another year before there were talks of Kos vs GSP again. IMO kos is a future champ but he needs more time to evolve, if he beats Alves and then gets beaten again by GSP he'll find himself in a Rich Franklin situation. Beaten by the top guy twice and no one wants to see a third fight but to dangerous to put against other top contenders as if he beats them it puts them out of the title picture.
KOSCHECK SHOULD NOT BE FIGHTING ALVES, THE MATCH SHOULD BE DELAYED UNTIL DIEGO IS HEALTHY!!!!!!
Give Alves someone like Marcus Davis (I know he's fighting Paul Kelly just can't think of someone else), they'll put on an exciting fight but Alves will come out on top and can fight Diego for number 1 contender when they are both healthy and ready.
