Last thing I want to see GSP vs KOS II, so I'm going with Thiago Alves.

Kos is smart enough not to stand and trade with Thiago for 2 long imo, he knows he needs to put Thiago on his ass and that is exactly what he will be doing

I'm going with my boy, Koscheck.

I think his wrestling will dominate Thiago and he has good enough stand-up to handle Thiago.

I'm going with Alves.

Kos is a great fighter these days, but I'd like to see Thiago get a shot at GSP. I'm sure he would be crushed, but I'm still curious.

I have been going back and forth on who to pick in this fight in my head and I have settled on Alves he will slow down Koscheck with leg kicks then knee him in the head for a KO.

I actually think Kos has the better hands of the 2 fighters. Alves has the advantage with leg kicks and knees and Kos obviously has the wrestling advantage. Alves has pretty good bjj, but it isnt good enough to catch Kos in anything. I think Kos will bang for a little bit, if he starts losing he will take Thiago down and pound on him for 3 rounds.

Surprised people are saying Alves will knock Koscheck out when GSP couldn't even finish Koscheck (even though he dominated).

If Koscheck wanted to he could hold Alves down for three rounds and I dont think he would get caught in a sub. This is a good fight for Koshcheck and I see him winning a decision.
