Thiago Alves vs Paulo Thiago UFC 107

Quote:
While the main focus of the day has been on the UFC's card-shuffling of heavyweight contenders, the organization is also staying busy with additional plans.

In a bout sure to cause some commentating confusion, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the event that a fight between Paulo Thiago (11-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) and Thiago Alves (16-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) is currently in the works, and at least one of the fighters has been approached about the contest.

American Top Team representatives declined to comment on the likelihood of the fight, and bout agreements for the contest have yet to be distributed.

Thiago looks to bounce back from his first career defeat, a unanimous-decision loss to Jon Fitch at July's UFC 100. The one-sided affair was Thiago's second UFC contest and followed a surprising TKO of contender Josh Koscheck in February.

Meanwhile, Alves will be looking to bounce back from a UFC 100 loss of his own, dropping a unanimous-decision to UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre at the July event. The loss was Alves' first since a June 2006 TKO at the hands of Fitch.

Though not yet officially announced, UFC 107 is set to take place on Dec. 12 at FedExForum in Memphis, Tenn. Headlined by a light heavyweight matchup between former champions Rashad Evans and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, the main card will air live on pay per view.

I have no idea why the UFC hates Paulo so much.

Kos, Fitch, now Alves.

Welcome to the UFC, buddy.

THey should have just done Swick to complete the AKA trifecta.

I think it is because he beat Josh Koscheck, and Dana White was not expecting (or wanting) this to happen.

Alves will win by whatever he wants. I don't think it'll go to decision like it did with Fitch.

But yeah... this kind of sucks. I wanted a Fitch/Alves rematch.

Yah same, I don't see Paulo giving Alves trouble anywheres but on his back -- if he can even get Alves to his back and keep him there long enough to do anything.

I don't see Alves being submitted from Paulo's guard either.

I like Alves in this one.

I don't really see the point in this, P.Thiago gets dominated by Fitch and then gets to fight the guy who just had a title shot?

Of course, I am backing Alves in this, could be a very rough night for P.Thiago.

Alves should dominate. Superior striking, wrestling and a very good ground game. He will finish him.

The UFC is tired of all the "Thiagos" running around, so they are going to have one of them beaten out of the UFC, and by a more superior "Thiago" might I add.
