I'm with this. Koshceck won't be like Hughes out there or Karo. He has hands and will mix it up with his far superior wrestling to take a ud. He's easily the best wrestler and fastest fighter Alves has ever faced

But, it only takes one big knee from Alves to change all that.

I actually don't think this fight will even be that close. Koscheck is a far better wrestler and while Alves TDD is improved it won't be nearly good enough to keep Kos off him. Alves is tough, he won't get finished early, if at all. I expect an easy UD for Kos or 3rd round TKO for him.

Kos has wrestling but Alves has a blackbelt in BJJ . If it goes to the ground and stays there (which it probably won't) I've got Alves by sub.

really I see Kos trying to shoot hard, taking a knee, and waking up 5 min later getting told what just happened to him.

I hope Kos does a good job on him. Kos is such a good fighter now, I don't think he is going to lose to somebody like Alves.

Alves all the way...

Alves is an animal, I really want to see him going for the title. Although I'm a big GSP fan these two would be all out war!

The only thing Koscheck is better at is running his mouth... It was histerical watching his pre and post fight interviews against GSP... "He thinks he will out wrestle me?" I forsee josh getting a little more of that tonight...

Alves KO second round...

I expect Kos to win but I can picture him getting KTFO by a knee as he shoots in for a takedown.
