You guys are going to think i'm nuts but i'm going with Josh Koscheck.
His wrestling is so superior I think he'll squeeze out a decision. His striking has come a long way too. Go ahead. Let me have it.

You're not nuts. Koscheck has improved insanely in every aspect - particularly in the stand up - game. I think he'll take it as well.

I'm taking Koscheck here to, but definately one of those that I won't be suprised if Thiago finishes him in a hurry.

Anyone with the name Thiago is a true bad ass.

This is definitely a fight that could go either way, but here's hoping that Thiago KO's Koscheck, 2nd round.

not a fan of either, thiago will have a lot more power than koscheck though. so that will be my reasoning for picking him.

I hate Alves. Failing to make weight against Hughes. Testing positive for diuretics to help him cut the weight in a past fight. Yet an explosion of nuthuggers seem to have emerged due to his recent success. I'll take Kos for a decisive UD that'll send Thiago back to the bottom of the 170 lb division where he belongs. He's a good striker, but I doubt he'll be able to handle Kos' wrestling. So Kos UD.

Kos is a better striker now than he gets credit for and I'm pretty sure he can take Alves down. I think it will end in the second round KOS by TKO.

Great fight! I don't think Kos is as prepared as he could be (taking the fight on such short notice).

I think Alves will take this by UD.

if it stays on the feet Alves by KO/TKO if it goes to the ground Alves by sub.
