I think a decent Alves beats Story, an Alves that we have recently seen with demolish Story.

I think this will be fight of the night. Thiago's not going down easy but he's goin down.

unless he just leg kicks the **** out of him from the very start.

I don't think Story will have that much of a problem securing takedowns and grinding out a win. Alves lack of fights in the past few years and drastic weight cut make me question what his cardio will be like in a fight that will have a lot of grappling exchanges as well.

Alves by UD for me. I think it will be reasonably close, but Alves will dominate the stand up and avoid enough takedowns to get the decision.
