Thumbs down

Comparing Alves at the weigh ins this time compared to his fight with Hughes, HUGE difference. He had like an extra 5 pounds of pure muscle over him. Now he just looks like he usually does.

He still can't hit 170, how on earth is he going to fight for a title where there's a half-pound weight limit.

why would he make 170 when you can make 171? path of least resistance my friend...i'm sure cutting 1 more pound would be very manageable for him

Alves looked much smaller, muscle wise, than he did against Hughes.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Yeah what did he weigh in at? Like 254 or something? As far as I know that's pretty big for him.

You're just a cook...

I would think after the whole incident with the Hughes fight Alves would go the extra mile to prove to UFC management that he is capable of making the weight requirements.
