what do you mean 'but still'? alves was really young when he fought fitch and had almost no tdd....that fight was tailor made for fitch to win...but oh how times change....alves defending a clean shot from kos in the 2nd round along with many other instances when kos was in a td position.....
alves is a completely different since then...he's got a bb in bjj, improved wrestling and his striking is better also
alves has a great chance against both gsp and i think he's a favourite against penn
i just don't get the no love for alves....even still....he was +250 underdog against karo....ko'd him (made me 100 bucks yay)....was an underdog against hughes, tko'd him....was a slight underdog against kos.....beat him decisively....
NEWSFLASH PEOPLE: his victory over kos was more dominant than gsp's over kos....stop giving him no chance against gsp
