Actually there's now new reports that this is a false alarm. Someone from American Top Team posted on another forum saying that they had just spoke to Alves and that he is still fighting.

That update is now being reported by Bloody Elbow.

The original information has now been re-confirmed by mmaweekly!

It seems that Thiago Alves still wanted to compete, which caused the conflicting reports from Bloody Elbow, but now he's acknowledged that he will have to pull out of the fight.

Must be a major disappointment for both fighters.
