When I read the thread title I thought Alves was either fighting himself or Thiago Silva or Thiago Tavares, I was very confused. Thiago must be the Brazillian equivilant of Thomas or something, heh.
Anyway, Paulo Thiago has been a perpetual underdog in his UFC stint. Many wrote him off going into the Koscheck fight and labled it a bad stoppage afterward, despite knocking Kos out legit (even if it was a flash ko it was still a ko.)
This will be a rough fight, Alves has some brutal kicks that he never used against GSP and his ground game is getting better. Thiago, I'm convinced, has cinder blocks for hands. Its going to be a good fight.
