i assure you, alves will put up a fight. this isn't a dwarf LW moving up to WW this time. this is a giant man who should really be fighting at MW. a humongous juggernaut of a beast who is bigger, stronger, sick takedown defense, great ground skills and much better striking. you will see a fight.
people said the same thing about fitch .. he was bigger, badder, couldn't be taken down and kept down, his guard was impassable ... GSP made him look ridiculous in all but the 2nd round ... Alves won't win a round in this fight .. he was taken down by matt quite easily, GSP has better takedowns and will take him down ...
