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.
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.
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...
