Alves UD for me. Story is tough, but Alves is tougher. Apart from losses to GSP and Fitch, Alves hasnt lost in nearly 6 years.

And losing to these two is no shame. The new, Dolce-Alves would give Fitch a run for his money imo.

Im going to go with story but I can see how it might end in favor of Alves. The NEW alves IMO would have issues with Shield, Fitch or GSP I dont see him beating any of them but he's going to ether KO Story or get laid on for three rounds IMO.

I see Alves being able to keep this standing and finish via TKO in the 2nd.

I've recently become a fan of Story. I just think the kid is a ****in' savage and I love his fighting style. I like Alves too, but i'll be rooting for Story.

Tough one to call. I'll pick Alves though by UD.

If alvez has a Achilles heel its high level grapples, Story's base is in wrestling and his grappling is very good as well. I think he'll be able to take alves down and work from there but I hope not, Id like to see how long Story can bang with Alves or if Thiago can just KO him, ether way its more exciting than the ground game in this one IMO.

Yeah Alves' grappling is very underrated, only GSP has been able to take him down at will. Fitch had a lot of success but didn't have it all his own way by any means. Story is a beast but in pure grapplignj terms he isn't on the level of Fitch or GSP, i think we'll see a lot of successful sprawling from Thiago and maybe even catching Story coming in with a knee too.
