Default Fitch Vs Alves Offical Co-Main for 117

Oh this is going to be good!

The Pitbull will look to get his bite back in August.

After a long and difficult process that ended with brain surgery, Thiago Alves has officially been cleared medically and will return to action on Aug. 7 to face Jon Fitch in the co-main event of UFC 117 in Oakland, Calif.

The UFC made the bout official on Tuesday.

Alves and Fitch were last scheduled to meet in March at UFC 111 in New Jersey, but pre-medical testing on the Brazilian revealed a brain anomaly that concerned doctors enough to pull him from the fight. The American Top Team welterweight returned to New York and underwent surgery to repair the issue, and after several tests to insure he was healthy, Alves has now been cleared.

Fitch remained on the UFC 111 card and went on to defeat late replacement Ben Saunders by unanimous decision.

This will be the first fight back for Alves since his title fight against Georges St-Pierre at the historic UFC 100 show last July.

The bout between Alves and Fitch will occupy the co-main event slot on the UFC 117 card, with headliners Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen battling for the UFC middleweight title.

Even if he was cleared to fight, I think its risky for him. Hope he doesn't get hurt.

Alves is going to get dry-humped for 3 rounds. Fitch by wet blanket decision.

Fitch is going to beat that Mexican up plain and simple.Or course then they'll blame that fact that Alves had surgery and it was "too soon" blah blah blah....
