Fitch was too busy beating him down standing to dominate him grappling.

I like Story's fights but I see Alves wrecking him. Lol @ the count down when they mentioned Alves not being able to stand in the center and brawl with Story. Alves will dominate the stand up

Story is looking GREAT- fantastic strategy as the takedown threat is negating Alves' stand up and kicks.

Story is a powerhouse.

I expect Alves to be more aggressive from now on.

Story looking good in there. Thiago can't handle the wrestlers still.

During that last exchange it looked like Thiago landed four or five good shots but story landed two good punches during his explosion. That round goes to Story, lets see if Alves gets away from the clinch.

That ain't no shit. Alves looks scared to even throw a kick!
