The American Psycho
I think its funny that Thiago Alves is accusing GSP of being a one-dimensional fighter when he's just about striking and nothing else! Your thoughts!12/05/10 - Alves: "GSP is just about takedowns now"
Thiago Alves is back in the game following recent surgery to correct a fused artery in his brain, and he is hoping to finally get his revenge match with Jon Fitch out of the way. The two have been set to fight at UFC 107 and UFC 111 but both fell through because of injury, the latter when Alves’ brain condition was discovered.
After having surgery on his brain in unorthodox fashion (doctors made an incision in his groin and worked up an artery into his cranium), he is now back in training and focused on avenging some career losse, starting with Fitch and then if he wins, Georges St. Pierre.
“I have nearly nine weeks to prepare for my next fight. Once I’m back in training, I will spend three weeks working my technical game, and then get in some hard training. I saw what Fitch’s plan was [at UFC 111]. I am ready for him. I was happy I saw his fight with Ben Saunders,” Alves tells Fighters Only.
“I also saw GSP’s game [against Dan Hardy] - he’s just about takedowns now. He has great timing, but he’s not taking any chances. I don’t blame him for that. When I meet him again, I’ll have a much better strategy.”
Alves’ rematch with Fitch has now been scheduled for UFC 117 which takes place in Oakland, California on August 7th. The latest UK edition of Fighters Only Magazine is out now and features a massive in-depth interview with Alves, including detailed information on the cutting-edge surgery he underwent for his condition. http://www.fightersonlymagazine.co.uk/news/viewarticle.php?id=4469
