I think GSP can and will take Alves down and basically out-point him, if not TKO him from the top. Koscheck's wrestling looked off-point tonight, which is likely from not training his wrestling recently, but GSP's wrestling is superior and he most likely will be able to get Alves down. If this fight stays standing however, Alves should have an advantage - which is why GSP won't look to keep it there for long.

I'll take GSP. If KOS gets a rematch I'd take him as well with a full training camp for thiago.

Awesome match-up! Can't wait for it to happen so please UFC make it happen.

It should be a close fight.. Alves has super dangerous stand-up so if the fight stays on the feet I give Alves the upper hand. If GSP manages to wrestle Alves to the ground he should be the better man though.

I think the match would be very close, don't see either one dominating the other.

I think Alves will have the slight advantage standing up, but I think GSP will be able to take him down.

Can't really call this fight right now, but I'll have a better thinking on this fight in a few weeks or so.

"When I hear athletes call themselves warriors, it does bother me a little bit. When I think of a warrior, I think of the Marines I've led in combat, those Marines that sacrificed so showers, little food, no contact with their family, all for their love for their brother Marine and for their love for their country. That's a warrior, willing to lay his life on the line. I've had Marines that have laid their lives on the line for the man next to him, and for their family and country. That's a warrior. The guy who goes into some athletic contest who has no war experience, in my eyes, really has no right to call himself that. That's a coveted thing to call someone, and that's what I call my Marines. Those are warriors." - Brian Stann

I'm leaning towards GSP. But I think it'll be a very tough fight no matter what!

I took GSP but I think Alves is his most dangerous opponent and can make a real fight out of it. Unlike Fitch he has an advantage in one area (standup) albeit a slight one IMO.

I'd still like to see him make 170 first though, I know its only a pound but him coming in a 171 all the time doesn't exactly fill me with confidence.

Give me Thiago. GSP's chin is suspect, Thiago will test it out. And I don't think he will be able to get Thiago down at will as well.

Forget GSP vs Anderson, I want to see this first.
